Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms enforced a nighttime ban this summer following two scooter-related deaths. The ban prohibits users from riding after 9 p.m.
Metro Atlanta has had four confirmed scooter-related deaths this year.
Under city law, users must rider scooters in the street — alongside cars — and abide by a 15 mph speed limit. At a town hall last month, advocacy groups called for lower speed limits to accommodate bicyclists, pedestrian and scooter riders and to lessen the number of traffic fatalities in the city.
Scooters first launched in Atlanta last summer. Atlanta City Council passed scooter regulations in January.
