Unpacking Electric Scooter Laws in Denver: Are They Street Legal?

Understanding the Legality of Electric Scooters in Denver

Electric scooters have revolutionized urban mobility, offering a convenient and eco-friendly way to navigate busy streets. As they grow in popularity, many Denver residents and visitors alike are asking, are electric scooters in Denverlegal? The answer is yes, with regulations.

Denver’s Electric Scooter Regulations

As of our knowledge cutoff in 2023, electric scooters in Denver are classified as 'Electric Mobility Scooters' and are subject to the city's rules and regulations regarding their use. To ensure the safety of both riders and pedestrians, Denver has put forth several guidelines that electric scooter users must follow.

Firstly, electric scooters are allowed to operate in bike lanes and on roadways with speed limits of 30 mph or less. Riders should stick to the right side of the road and follow the same traffic laws that apply to cyclists. While it's tempting to zip down sidewalks, scooters are not allowed on them. Keeping scooters off the sidewalk ensures the safety of pedestrians and prevents potential accidents.

Helmet Use and Age Restrictions

Denver recommends that all electric scooter riders wear helmets, although it is not mandated by law for riders over the age of 18. Riders must be 16 years of age or older to operate an electric scooter, and those under 18 are required to wear a helmet.

Parking Electric Scooters

Another important aspect of legal scooter use in Denver is proper parking. Scooters should be parked upright, leaving a clear path on sidewalks for pedestrians, and should not obstruct ramps, transit stops, or building entrances.

Ride Responsibly

For those planning to use electric scooters, Denver encourages responsible riding. Be mindful of your surroundings, yield to pedestrians, and never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Sharing the road responsibly ensures a safer environment for everyone.

Electric Scooter Sharing Programs

Denver has authorized several scooter-sharing programs, which have specific rules for distribution and management of the scooters. Participating in these programs requires users to follow additional guidelines and use the designated apps to rent and responsibly park scooters after use.


In summary, electric scooters are indeed legal in Denver, but it's essential to adhere to the city's regulations. Responsible ridership ensures that you can enjoy the benefits of this innovative transportation method while maintaining safety and order on Denver streets.

For the most current information and any changes to these regulations, always refer to the official City and County of Denver website or contact local authorities.
