Hoboken adding fines for violations of e-scooter ride share rules

Published by:

The e-scooter ride-sharing program hasn’t even been up and running for a month yet in Hoboken, but already, it is generating a lot of complaints. Police have been inundated with calls of people violating the scooter rules, and now, the city plans to implement fines against offenders.
The program’s popularity is undeniable, with a record number of participants, but there have been some concerns because some riders are disobeying traffic laws.
“It borderlines on a little bit on the dangerous side,” rider Billy Schicky said. “From the excess speed, not paying attention to the pedestrians, zig-zagging in and out of cars.” According to the e-scooter company Lime, there were some 50,900 rides through Wednesday with nearly 18,000 riders.
