03/14/2019


DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS – March 14, 2019 – As a safety measure, Dripping Springs City Council, on March 12, approved an ordinance that bans the use of motor assisted scooters on public rights of way and sidewalks within the city.

The ordinance also prohibits a person from abandoning any motor-assisted scooter on any public sidewalk, public property, public park, public way, public street, or highway within the city.

“We’re not going to wait for an accident to happen,” Mayor Todd Purcell said. “We want to prevent it. These regulations ensure we are taking the necessary steps to protect our citizens and visitors.”

Violators of the ordinance are punishable with a fine. The city may also impound any motor-assisted scooters found unattended on any public property, public rights of way, or sidewalk.  Prior to impoundment, a warning sticker will be placed on the scooter to give the user 24 hours to remove it. 

The ordinance will go into effect after it is published in the newspaper on March 21 and will be posted on the city’s website at www.cityofdrippingsprings.com
