Phoenix scooter ban now in effect: "Planning on putting a motorized scooter under your Christmas tree? Think twice if you live in Phoenix. The toys, popular gifts for children and adults, are officially banned from city streets and sidewalks as of this week. With the move, Phoenix joins other Valley cities in restricting scooter use. Glendale and Tucson have similar rules. In Mesa, the scooters are allowed only during certain hours. Phoenix's new regulation means scooters, commonly referred to as pocket bikes, can't be used on any kind of public land, including parks and alleys. And they can be used on private property only with the owner's written consent."
