Sec. 5-15.   Purpose and intent.
   It is the purpose and intent of this article to provide for the regulation of bicycles, electric scooters and other "shared mobility devices" to protect the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, motor vehicle drivers and operators of shared mobility devices. The mayor and council find it is in the public interest to regulate the operation of shared mobility devices by prohibiting their use unless authorized and permitted by the director of the department of transportation and by imposing age restrictions and safety requirements for the users of shared mobility services.
