The Electric Bicycle Controversy

The Electric Bicycle Controversy

Some Call for a Ban, Others Boost Them.
Receive insight from an E-Bike innovator as well as hear what the City of Newport Beach is doing to address E-Bike safety, education, and enforcement

Like them or not, electric bicycles are ubiquitous in the City of Newport Beach. Their relatively low cost, ease of use, and portability make for convenient transportation for young and old alike. But how do we get electric bicycle riders to peacefully coexist with pedestrians on our boardwalk, sidewalks, and trails as well as with motor vehicles on our roadways? The CEO and Founder of Pedego Electric Bikes as well as City representatives from both Public Works and the Police Department will discuss the issues and provide insight on how we can address some of the challenges.
