Councilmember Barbara Bry Calls for Temporary Ban on Scooters

July 26, 2019

Enough is enough.

I am calling for a temporary ban on electric scooter rentals until we demonstrate that we can develop a fiscally responsible plan that protects San Diegans and ensures public and environmental safety.

As of now, some of these electric scooter companies are willfully ignoring restrictions and regulations, emergency rooms are filling up with severe, scooter-related injuries and city resources are being wasted to collect thousands of inappropriately parked devices, some of which are pilling up in at least one scooter graveyard which poses a long-term environmental hazard for our City.

When I was elected to the City Council, I pledged to work for and protect San Diegans -- NOT outside interests or private companies. That’s what is guiding my call for a temporary ban on electric scooter rentals until we have a system in place that ensures public safety is protected and taxpayers are not footing the bill.
