To ensure that riders are following the rules, LTU will actively cooperate and coordinate with the Lincoln Police Department (LPD). Initially, the City is handling enforcement by giving out warnings and educating riders that riding on the sidewalks is not allowed in Downtown Lincoln. After an initial introduction phase, if police have evidence that someone has violated City code, the rider or vendor could be cited. Possible penalties for violating the code are up to a $500 fine, up to six months in jail, or a combination of both fine and jail.
The City is also conducting targeted communication efforts and has an active social media education campaign currently running on the correct ways to ride and park e-scooters in Lincoln. These targeted communication efforts focus heavily on the improper use of e-scooters, sidewalk violations and improper parking.
