New Wis. Law Regulates Electric Scooters

Governor Tony Evers signed a bill to regulate electric scooters on Wisconsin’s roads and sidewalks.  Under the bipartisan measure, scooters must weigh less than 100 pounds and abide by a 15 mph speed limit.  Local governments could prohibit their use on sidewalks or streets with speed limits above 25 mph and restrict public rentals.

Evers signed the bill Monday afternoon in Milwaukee, stating the bill will expand transportation options across the state.
