Scooter drivers will have to follow some new rules in Cape Girardeau after the city council passed an ordinance last week. Effective Friday those who drive a scooter under 50 cc’s must travel on designated roads only and required to wear a helmet, have insurance and not carry any passengers. The issue was first passed in its initial reading October 15th. It received final approval last Monday night. Campus Scooters Owner Todd Rapp tells KZIM-KSIM they are adjusting. A scooter operator must also be a licensed driver. Scooter safety has been a growing concern with the number of users in Cape Girardeau growing over the past couple of years. You can see the ordinance rules at CityofCapeGirardeau.org.
