The City has sent notices of violation to Lime, Bird, Skip and Lyft electric scooter companies, who are not complying with geofencing and other regulations that took effect July 1 with a new City ordinance.

“Bird has violated geofencing requirements in nine different locations across the city, with Lyft and Lime doing so in seven locations,” wrote Mayor Kevin Faulconer on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. Each has been ordered to comply by July 29 or cease operating in San Diego.”

Senior City press secretary Christina Di Leva Chadwick said the City has also been actively enforcing and impounding scooters that are out of compliance. “City crews impounded more than 2,500 scooters during the Comic-Con alone,” she said. “The impound fee is $65 per SDM and a $1 per day storage charge. No storage fee is charged to the Comic-Con related impounds.

“The violating operators have 10 days to fix the issues or they must cease operations until the issues have been addressed,” said Di Leva Chadwick. “The City will also move forward with non-compliance proceedings to revoke permits for those operators who don’t comply.”
