Motorized Scooter Laws

Motorized Scooters Prohibited

Under state law, motorized scooters cannot be driven on streets or sidewalks. Locally, they are also not allowed on the paths or lots in the Vernon Hills Park District.

It is hard for a person with no training in the rules of the road to be expected to safely operate a motorized scooter and not place their lives or the lives of others (especially pedestrians) in jeopardy. Operating a motorized scooter is only acceptable on private property, with the owner's permission.
