The assistance is introducing geofencing and no wheel zones, which brings riders to a gradual quit when they enter sure zones during sure occasions.
Geofencing was applied in discovered problem areas for skid mark graffiti and spots this sort of as downtown and Gage Park.
The no wheel zone for the downtown spot is successful Thursday by means of Sunday soon after 11 P.M.
Chicken suggests that they will actively perform with TPD to take care of the situation and establish culprits but councilman Mike Lesser believes their methods need to be focused somewhere else.
“I never want law enforcement enforcing targeted visitors rules in regard to scooters, which is not what they are in this article for. We’ve experienced a tragic past pair of days with shootings and we’re brief staff and its difficult ample, the last issue I want is our law enforcement officers stressing about citations for scooter graffiti.”
Chook says they do have ideas to carry non-skid wheels to the area.
