Duluth City Council to consider speed limit for ebikes and motorized scooters
Three Duluth city councilors are proposing a speed limit for ebikes and motorized scooters in certain areas.
Councilors Terese Tomanek, Arik Forsman, and Mike Mayou are bringing forward an ordinance that would limit their speed to 10 mph on the Lakewalk from Canal Park to the Rose Garden and on the Baywalk behind the DECC.
Several people have emailed the council with concerns about how fast the devices can go, potentially posing a danger to pedestrians in popular walking areas.
The ordinance will get a first read on Monday, Aug. 15, and could be voted on as soon as Aug. 22.
