Electric Scooters Prohibited on Fort Lauderdale Beach
During Summer Beach Season: June 8 - August 18

Fort Lauderdale, FL (June 10, 2019) – Over the next two months, the City of Fort Lauderdale is prepared to welcome visitors from all over the world to our vibrant, dynamic, and fun-filled beach, which TripAdvisor recently named as one of the Top 10 Beaches in the U.S.! We are committed to ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of residents and visitors during this high impact event and throughout the year.  

Between June 8 and August 18, 2019, electric or motorized scooters, and any other forms of dockless mobility (including those that are privately owned), will be prohibited on the entirety of the barrier island, per City of Fort Lauderdale Ordinance C-19-03, Sec. 8-55.5. No scooter operations may occur at any time within the following boundaries: the Atlantic Ocean to the east, up to and including the westernmost bank of the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, Southeast 17th Street to the south, and Northeast 42nd Court to the north.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department will be monitoring summer activities to ensure that all City ordinances are followed. The City of Fort Lauderdale looks forward to a safe and fun-filled summer! The public is encouraged to follow us on Twitter (@FTLCityNews).
