Attorney Ken Riley was quoted on an article by Unagi Scooters titled “The Comprehensive Guide to Electric Scooter Laws.”
According to Ken Riley, Partner at Farris, Riley & Pitt, Alabama’s newly enacted electric scooter laws more clearly distinguish a scooter from a motor vehicle, which as of May 30, 2019 had not been contemplated when the laws were originally enacted. Now, municipalities are free to develop ordinances that will cater to the nuances of each community. While some cities struggle with the existence of scooter traffic, others embrace the freedoms and conveniences the concept provides. Hopefully, cities like Birmingham – who are not seeing the benefits of electric scooters – will take note from the experiences of other cities with a track record of scooter usage and work to blend together a working local law that promises freedom and safety for users and the public. The scooter world is not without controversy and it will take careful thought to create the framework of a system that can be a template that other cities can imitate.
