Reminder on Motorized Scooters
The City of Park Ridge has an ordinance (Sec. 13-2-12 Operation Without a License), which states that "A person who does not have a valid driver’s license may not operate any motorized vehicle of any kind or nature, including motor driven scooters, on any public property within the City of Park Ridge. Public property shall include, but not be limited to, roadways, alleys, parkways, sidewalks and streets (including private streets)…."
