Muratsuchi Bill Would Adopt Scooter Safety Rules

Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi’s (D-Torrance) Assembly Bill 1286, which would require cities and counties to adopt safety rules before e-scooter and other shared mobility service providers offer any device for rent or use, passed the Assembly floor on Monday.

The bill would also require the service providers to provide minimum insurance to protect riders as well as pedestrians and others in the event of an injury.
