Are Electric Scooters Legal in Sioux Falls?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Sioux Falls has now developed specific ordinances that govern the operation of electric scooters within the city. These regulations have been implemented to promote public safety and to integrate electric scooters as a viable mode of transportation. Users must adhere to these rules, which cover aspects like speed limits, where scooters can be ridden, parking, and the use of helmets. It is crucial for riders to familiarize themselves with these local ordinances as well as state laws to ensure compliance.

Reference Link

Currently no city specific ordinances exist. In this case the state laws currently in place offer the best reference to legality.

Max Speed

15 mph on bicycle trails and on-street bicycle lanes; 6 mph in downtown Sioux Falls business districts

Minimum Age

18 years to rent an electric scooter; riders between 14 to 18 years can operate if the scooter is owned by a parent or guardian

Helmets Required? 

Not required by law for riders over 18, but use is strongly recommended for all riders for safety. Riders under 18 are required to wear helmets.
