Today, the St. Louis Street Department, after continued discussions with downtown residents and businesses, announced a scooter curfew for the Downtown and Downtown West neighborhoods. The curfew for these areas begins immediately, and will be implemented seven days a week, from 9:00pm to 8:00am. The curfew will continue indefinitely as part of a broader effort to improve public safety downtown.
“Today’s decisive action illustrates this administration’s commitment to working collaboratively with Downtown residents and businesses. This is just one step towards a more comprehensive plan, and the City continues to solicit input from Downtown stakeholders around policies to improve public safety.”
- Nick Dunne, spokesperson for Mayor Tishaura O. Jones
Scooter companies Lime and Bird have acknowledged the order and are fully cooperating.
