SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The San Diego City Council has voted to tentatively approve a prohibition of electric scooters on the city’s boardwalks.

The Council voted 5-4 Monday afternoon to approve the ban. The prohibition will include Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, Mission Bay Park Bayside Walk and the La Jolla Shores Boardwalk.

Earlier this year, councilmembers voted for regulations on the dockless scooters.


Some of the regulations included a speed limit drop from 15 to 8 miles per hour on boardwalks, a ban on parking scooters in certain areas and permitting fees.

The city also created dozens of designated scooter corrals to prevent the scooters from clogging sidewalks.
