Evansville, Indiana City Council passes amendment on e-scooter ordinance

Evansville City Council put official rules on the books for e-scooter riders, approving a new ordinance mostly as written.

The ordinance states that you must be 16 years or older to ride an e-scooter, but you don’t need a driver’s license.

You can’t ride the scooters while under the influence.

E-scooters must be parked on a sidewalk, but can’t block a path or entrances to buildings.

Council Member Michelle Mercer proposed several amendments to the ordinance. The only one to pass, though, bans e-scooter use on the Greenway.
