Rehoboth Creates Scooter Parking to Address Safety Concerns

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - A series of new parking spaces specifically for scooters could address safety concerns raised by businesses in Rehoboth Beach.

The city divided five traditional parking spaces on the street into 29 moped spots, the first of their kind within city limits.

Businesses complained scooters were driving down sidewalks to park near bike racks creating a safety concern for pedestrians.

"We have plenty of old folks, little kids running around not watching. They shouldn't have to watch," said Jeffrey Clayton, who owns a business near a bike rack on Rehoboth Avenue. "They're on the sidewalks and scooters come straight up. Those things are going to hit somebody."

The scooter parking spots are located on Baltimore Avenue, Wilmington Avenue and Christian Street.

Clayton called the new spots a step in the right direction but expressed opposition that scooter drivers using the spaces will not have to pay to park.
