San Diego City Council votes to ban electric scooters from boardwalks

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.
