The City of University Park is reminding residents that electric scooters are prohibited on all public streets, alleys and sidewalks.

The University Park ordinance prohibiting motor-assisted scooters was developed in 2009 to safeguard against serious accidents and injuries. SMU community members should please be aware that violators of the University Park policy may be ticketed by University Park Police and are subject to a $136 municipal fine.

University Park is asking residents to call 214-363-1644 or dial 311 if they see rental electric scooters on street corners and sidewalks and want them removed. You can read about this ordinance and other University Park news online.
