Ocean City Requires Helmets And Shoes To Ride Rentals

The Ocean City Town Council passed a law requiring helmets and shoes to be worn by anyone renting devices such as mopeds and motorized scooters. The law also requires rental businesses to clearly identify scooters as rentals. Resort officials say they have seen more scooter accidents this year than in recent memory. Council members say they would like to see every scooter driver wearing a helmet, but the law does not cover people driving scooters they own.
