The way you ride an e-scooter or e-bike could change this summer. The San Diego City Council has approved changes that tighten existing rules governing shared vehicles.

The city has tentatively approved rules that would require scooter and bike companies to handle complaints and enforce violators of the new rules themselves. Scooters and e-bikes would also be banned from riding or parking on sidewalks. They should be left inside painted corrals on city streets. Cyclists should use designated roads or cycle paths.

“Finally, in 2022 we’re getting proper regulations, which is where we should have been in 2018,” said a smiling Jonathan Freeman of Safe Walkways.

“We’re not anti-scooter,” Freeman added. “We are pro-pedestrian safety.”

The City of San Diego was unsure when the new ordinance would go into effect. That is expected to happen sometime after July 31, when the city’s current contracts with seven companies expire. The city will reduce the number of companies under contract to four, limiting the number of electric bikes and scooters available to 8,000, from 11,000 previously.

The new rules will also prohibit the rental of scooters and bicycles between 00:00 and 02:30.

Freeman said the measures were going in the right direction, but he wondered who would enforce the new rules.

“The city is taking a very, very passive approach,” Freeman said with a shrug. “The fact that there is a regulation, however, does not mean that it is going to be enforced.”

Under the new rules, businesses should respond to a complaint within an hour. They have three hours under the current rules.

San Diego caps the number of scooter companies and limits the number of scooters on city streets.

SAN DIEGO — San Diego has changed the way e-scooter and e-bike companies can operate in the city.

At a hearing on Tuesday, members of city council unanimously approved several changes to the ordinance that governs shared mobility devices.

Changes include capping the number of scooters from 11,050 citywide to 8,000 as well as limiting the number of vendors that can operate in San Diego.

RELATED: New rules aim to crack down on scooter companies in San Diego

WATCH RELATED: The proposed rules will crack down on scooter and e-bike companies.

Additionally, the revised ordinance requires scooter companies to ensure that riders are over 16 and have valid identification. It also prohibits cyclists from renting more than one scooter or e-bike at a time. Other changes include implementing new geofencing needed to keep shared mobility devices away from sidewalks and inside designated parking corrals.

City council members changed the shared mobility device ordinance as the city faces multiple lawsuits. The lawsuits include a 2019 class action lawsuit filed by California Disability Rights on scooters blocking access to sidewalks and city streets for people in wheelchairs and with reduced mobility.

The city and the disability rights group must submit a joint motion to dismiss the class action. Disability Rights California did not respond to a request for comment on the status of the litigation.

Last year, the city also filed a lawsuit against scooter companies that operate in San Diego. The lawsuit sought to force scooter companies to defend the city in lawsuits brought by cyclists or those who have been harmed in some way by shared mobility devices. That lawsuit is now nearing completion and is listed as dismissed on the state court’s website.

In a statement on the lawsuit, a city spokesperson said the city could not comment on the ongoing litigation.

The city will now move forward with issuing new licenses to shared mobility device operators looking to do business in San Diego. This process will begin in July.

PPG recently announced that it is supplying Lyft, one of the largest transportation networks in the United States and Canada, with a retroreflective powder coating for its e-bikes.

The e-bikes will be used in Lyft’s DIVVY bike share program to increase rider visibility. The program is the first use of retroreflective e-bikes in the United States.

Lyft’s pilot program launched in the California Bay Area in June 2021, in New York earlier this year, and will launch in Chicago in December.

PPG uses an Abel Gray finish. The paint color honors Lyft engineer Abel Lopez who was hit and killed by a vehicle while riding his bike in October 2020.

“Until his untimely passing, Abel was a valued member of the Lyft family and was very passionate about our efforts to implement retroreflective technology in our e-bikes,” said Edgar Japitana, Group Senior Manager, Lyft Supplier Industrialization Engineering. . “Improving safety for cyclists is paramount, and we are very proud to commemorate Abel through our partnership with PPG and its Abel Gray coating named in his honor.”

The PPG ENVIROCRON LUM coating was inspired by the reflective properties of deer eyes and uses a formulation with embedded glass beads that refract light and retro-reflect it to improve visibility.

Replacing short car trips with e-bikes: report https://veldia.net/replacing-short-car-trips-with-e-bikes-report/ Sun, 22 May 2022 23:48:40 +0000 https://veldia.net/replacing-short-car-trips-with-e-bikes-report/ A US report suggests that e-bikes can replace short car trips, with significant environmental benefits.

A US report suggests that e-bikes can replace short car trips, with significant environmental benefits.

Bike Adviser says 55% of car trips in the United States are less than five miles — and if 50% of those were replaced by e-bikes, it would save 273,000 metric tons of CO2 every day,” which is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 4.5 million tree seedlings grown for 10 years.”

It identifies five regions – the District of Columbia and four states: Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Ohio – that have the greatest e-bike potential, as more than 57% of their car trips are up to 8 km.

“They could get the most out of e-bikes because of their relatively short journeys that could be replaced by cars with e-bikes,” the report suggests.

Switching from cars to e-bikes would collectively save 2,753 metric tons of CO2 every day at an adoption rate of 8%.

“This is equivalent to the CO2 emissions of 334 million charged smartphones,” says Bike Adviser.

Washington DC has the highest proportion of short-haul trips in the United States: 64% of trips are less than five miles.

But targeting the most polluting states would help generate greater CO2 savings, even if they have fewer trips under five miles.

For example, California, Texas, and New York “are states famous for their love affair with high-carbon cars and products.”

California has the highest transportation emissions of all, with 51,370 metric tons of CO2 emitted by cars every day.

“If just 8% of car trips in California were to be replaced by e-bikes, our country would save 4,078 metric tons of CO2 every day, nearly equivalent to the combined CO2 emissions saved in DC, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Wyoming and Ohio together,” the report said.

Bike Adviser is a bike platform operated by search engine optimization agency Manaferra.

PUNE Amid a surge in demand for e-bikes, several manufacturers are seen to be selling high-voltage batteries for these vehicles illegally. Taking serious notice of the problem and for the safety of people, the Pune Regional Transport Office (RTO) has issued a circular about it to manufacturers and dealers and warned people against buying such vehicles.

Soon, special training will be carried out by the RTO to check these e-bikes and if they are found to be illegal, a police report will be filed against them, officials said.

According to the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, electric bicycles with a battery capacity of less than 250 watts and a speed limit of 25 km/h are exempt from registration taxes and motor vehicle taxes. However, the vehicles must be certified by certain government-approved institutes. In addition, it is necessary to do the “Vehicle Model Test” from authorized testing agencies and obtain a “Type Approval Test Report” of the bicycle to obtain the exemption. Yet, it turns out that several manufacturers are illegally selling the e-bikes under this exemption and later increasing the bike’s battery capacity and range.

“There is a process to get the exemption clearance for e-bikes with less battery capacity and minimum range. But it turns out that some manufacturers are selling bikes under this exemption and later , increase the battery capacity and the range is also changed. Making such changes in the bike is illegal and risky for riders,” said Ajit Shinde, Pune regional transport manager.

In March, one of Ola Electric’s S1 Pro scooters caught fire in Pune, triggering safety concerns for e-bikes.

“All RTOs in the state will undertake a special campaign to audit and verify the manufacturing units and dealers of these bikes in their respective jurisdictions. Also in the Pune RTO division, the ride will be done and if found guilty, the seller of the bike and the person who bought it will face legal action. As under the Motor Vehicle Act 1988 and relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), police complaints will be filed against them,” Shinde added.

A total of 66,482 e-bikes have been registered in Maharashtra till May 20.

People who ride e-bikes and e-scooters need to keep up to date with the latest laws and regulations if they want to avoid a hefty fine or even jail time, it is claimed. Fashionable vehicles are now commonplace on UK roads and pavements, but many drivers seem unaware of the rules governing their use.

Contrary to popular opinion, a recent study found that electric scooters and e-bikes are actually five times safer for their riders than regular bicycles. The research was carried out on behalf of the goodbyecar car dealership online.

It turns out that, as things stand, there are no specific regulations regarding e-scooters or e-bikes and their riders. This, however, means that drivers are subject to the same law that governs cars and other motor vehicles on public roads and highways across the country.

GoodByeCar said electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, especially in cities. Indeed, they are relatively affordable, convenient to use and make it easier to avoid traffic jams and get around faster. But there are some important things to keep in mind if you’re a cyclist – or if you’re considering buying an e-bike or e-scooter.

“More and more people are ditching their cars to get around cities, opting to navigate a city on an e-bike or e-scooter,” a spokeswoman for the study said. “There’s no added stress on where to park, they’re cheaper than booking a taxi and can drive through areas of clean air.

“However, riders must be up to date on laws and regulations to avoid penalty points or even driving bans.” They are particularly advised to avoid drinking and riding as the weather warms up and the evenings last longer.

Luckily, GoodByeCar has decided to outline some of the rules of the road that could catch e-bike and e-scooter riders if they’re not careful. They also include some practical advice on what not to do.

What are the laws regarding e-bikes and e-scooters?

Since e-scooters and e-bikes are not governed by separate regulations, they fall under the same laws as motor vehicles. This means that drivers can face two years in prison, between three and 11 penalty points or a driving ban, and an unlimited fine for dangerous driving.

For reckless and considerate driving, offenders may also be subject to a driving ban, between three and nine penalty points on their driver’s license, and an unlimited fine. When it comes to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, potential penalties include a driving ban, between three and 11 penalty points and an unlimited fine.

Courts can also sentence riders to six months in prison for driving under the influence – depending on the seriousness of the offence. Those who are already prohibited from driving a motor vehicle can be sentenced to an unlimited fine and a six-month prison sentence.

As with motorists, a £1,000 fine awaits drivers caught using a mobile phone while using an e-bike or e-scooter. There is also a £500 penalty for anyone riding a bike or riding on a kerb.

Tips on what not to do when riding an e-bike or e-scooter

Don’t ride under the influence

Driving an e-scooter or e-bike under the influence of drugs or alcohol will receive the same punishment as those driving a car under the influence. This could lead to jail time, a driving ban and a heavy fine. If you come back from the pub after a drink or two, take a lift, taxi or even walk rather than renting and riding an electric scooter.

Do not ride carelessly and without consideration for others on the road

Driving recklessly can seem rather ambiguous and difficult to understand. In simple terms, however, it means driving in a manner without reasonable consideration for others who may be inconvenienced by you.

When riding an e-scooter, certain behaviors may be considered a traffic violation. Doing any of the following things above could result in up to nine penalty points, a substantial fine, and a driving ban.

● Calibration

● Dangerous overshoot and merge

● Using the wrong lane at a roundabout

● Overtaking on the left side of the lane

● Eating or drinking while riding

● Sneak through traffic

● Smoking

Do not drive while disqualified to drive

To be able to drive an electric scooter, you must either have the right to category Q, AM, A or B on your full or provisional driving licence. If you are not allowed to drive, you are not allowed to ride an electric scooter and you risk jail time and a heavy fine.

Do not use your phone while driving

Just like driving a car, drivers are prohibited from using their phones. This is even if you are at a red light or in stopped traffic. If you need to use your phone, stop in a safe place and get off the bike or scooter. If you are caught using your phone whilst driving you can face a £1000 fine and a driving ban.

Don’t ride on the sidewalk

Driving e-scooters and e-bikes on sidewalks is an offence, which applies to all motorized vehicles. When riding, make sure you are on the road and obey the rules you would follow if you were driving a car, such as stopping at a red light and staying in the correct lane when approaching traffic. a roundabout.
