SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego Police are cracking down on motorized scooters around the 4th of July holiday. Many riders are getting ticketed for not wearing helmets. Some riders say they weren't aware of the rules; others simply don't care.
It's become a staple for San Diego beaches. Surf, sun and motorized scooters.
"I love them they're really fun and really fast," said Tatum Gurrero.
The California vehicle code 21235 states you may not operate a motorized scooter without a properly fitted helmet. But not everyone is following the rules.
