Are Electric Scooters Legal in Winston-Salem?
If you use scooters or bikes, you must follow these rules:
- You must be at least 16.
- Do not ride on sidewalks. Scooters can only be used in streets.
- Obey stop lights, stop signs and all other traffic laws. Under North Carolina law, scooters and bikes must follow the same traffic laws as motor vehicles. This includes yielding to pedestrians in the public right-of-way.
- Do not block sidewalks, driveways or curbside parking with the scooter or bike when you are finished riding.
- Scooters cannot be used in Old Salem, on greenways or in public parks.
Not a rule -- but a strong recommendation: Wear a helmet!
