Motorized Skateboards, Scooters, and Bikes


Motorized Skateboards, Scooters, and Bikes

Due to safety concerns for students, faculty and staff, the use of motorized skateboards, scooters, and bikes is prohibited from the interior of the CMC Campus. If using such a vehicle on the exterior of campus, riders are required to follow all applicable state and local laws, not limited to CVC21235 which disallows people to:

  • Operate a motorized scooter unless it is equipped with a brake that will enable the operator to make a braked wheel skid on dry, level, clean pavement.
  • Operate a motorized scooter without wearing a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet that meets the standards described in Section 21212, if the operator is under 18 years of age.
  • Operate a motorized scooter carrying any package, bundle, or article that prevents the operator from keeping at least one hand upon the handlebars.
  • Operate a motorized scooter without a valid driver’s license or instruction permit.
  • Operate a motorized scooter upon a sidewalk, except as may be necessary to enter or leave adjacent property.
  • Leave a motorized scooter lying on its side on any sidewalk, or park a motorized scooter on a sidewalk in any other position, so that there is not an adequate path for pedestrian traffic.
  • Operate a motorized scooter with any passengers in addition to the operator.

Individuals assume their own risk when riding a motorized/electric vehicle. CMC is not responsible for injuries which may occur while riding a motorized/electric vehicle outside of campus policies.  Please contact the Vice President for Student Affairs at dos@cmc.edu with any questions.
