Shared Rideables (e-bikes & e-scooters) Enforcement

Effective November 19, 2019, the City of Sacramento Police and Public Works Departments will begin enforcement of all traffic and parking laws for users of shared rideables such as e-bikes and e-scooters.  Sacramento PD could cite users for traffic or vehicle code violations, and Public Works Parking Enforcement Officers will begin reporting parking violations to device operators, who may choose to pass those costs on to the individuals who improperly parked the devices.

Violations such as scooting on the sidewalk may result in citations of up to $207.  Companies, who are required to provide user education about rules and regulations, may receive a citation of $27.50 for an incorrectly parked device.

A complete list of all shared rideable regulations as well as information about where to park can be found on the City of Sacramento Shared Bikes and Scooters Webpage.
