The San Diego Municipal Code outlines specific rules that electric scooter riders must adhere to while navigating the city. One of the primary stipulations is that electric scooters must not exceed a speed limit of 15 mph on public roadways, bike paths, or boardwalks. Riders are also required to be over the age of 16, and those under the age of 18 must wear a helmet at all times while riding.


Another key aspect of San Diego’s electric scooter laws is the prohibition of riding on sidewalks. Scooters should be ridden in bike lanes or on the street if there are no bike lanes available. When parking an electric scooter, it should be done in a manner that does not obstruct pedestrian paths, driveways, or access ramps.


The city also focuses on the enforcement of DUI laws to electric scooter riders, emphasizing that the same rules that apply to drivers of motor vehicles also apply to scooter operators.


Understanding and following these rules will not only keep you on the right side of the law but will also contribute to the safety of all commuters within the vibrant city of San Diego.


Before setting off on your next ride, make sure to review the complete set of regulations provided by the City of San Diego or consult with the local Department of Motor Vehicles for the most up-to-date information on electric scooter laws.
