Scooters Prevented from Canals by Geo Fencing

By Darryl DuFay

The Venice Canals now have a geo fence, controlled by GPS, eliminating scooter operation on the narrow alleys and sidewalks.  A scooter will just not operate in the canal area. The servers may get overloaded and one will slip by.

It is illegal to ride a scooter on the sidewalks. Also scooters are part of the CA Vehicle Code, Section 21235.

The City of Los Angeles is depending upon the public for assistance with enforcement because the City does not have enough traffic enforcement personnel. One can assist by using a Dockless Enforcement Service Request.  It is found at: myla311.lacity.org  Click on: Create Service Request. Look under “Transportation / Dockless Mobility Enforcement.”  Click on that, then click in the upper right hand corner.
