Restrictions to eligible parking zones on sidewalks shall be as follows:
- Scooters shall not be parked at the corners of sidewalks nor at any crosswalk, curb ramp, or within any feature that serves as an accessible element such as landings, areas of refuge, detectable warning surfaces, or any other physical feature that may be required for mobility.
- Scooters shall not be parked on blocks where the landscape/furniture zone is less than 3 feet wide, or where there is no landscape/furniture zone.
- On blocks without sidewalks, Scooters may be parked if the travel lane(s) and 6-foot pedestrian clear zone are not impeded.
- Scooters can only be parked on hard surfaces within the landscape/furniture zone (e.g. concrete, asphalt).
