Skateboarding and motorized scooters are becoming a problem on the Borough streets and sidewalk.
Borough Ordinance 410, section 101 states that Skateboarding, Scootering and sledding are PROHIBITED and is restricted on Sidewalks, Streets and Alleys…..No person or persons shall coast or ride upon any sled, scooter, skateboard, three-wheeled pedaled conveyance without brakes or similar conveyance upon any street or alley in the Borough of Marysville.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation says the “use of motorized scooters on the highways of the Commonwealth is illegal and their use is clearly and inherently dangerous.” According to the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code (75 Pa C.S. 102) motorized scooters are motor vehicles. A motor vehicle may not be ridden on the sidewalks (75 Pa C.S. 703(a)) and inspected ((75 Pa C.S. 4703 (a)) in the state of Pennsylvania and any rider/driver must be licensed (75 Pa C.S 1501 (a)). However, the motorized scooters cannot meet the standards set for titling, registration or inspection of motor vehicles. Therefore, a motorized scooter cannot be legally ridden/driven on the highway or public property.
