Repeal New Law that Prohibits Mopeds from Parking on Sidewalk Terraces in Madison, WI

This petition had 2,056 supporters


On August 1st, Madison City Council passed a citywide ordinance which will prohibit mopeds from parking on sidewalk terrace areas and force them to abide by street parking rules beginning January 1st, 2018. (Sidewalk terraces are areas on the ends of sidewalks that are not directly in pedestrian walk-way.) Mopeds will be classified as motorcycles for parking purposes and any mopeds that are parked on sidewalk terraces will face a $65 fine. This new law will affect moped and car owners alike, as mopeds will begin occupying already limited street parking spaces. There are around 2000 mopeds registered in the city of Madison, and this number does not account for the many students whose mopeds are registered in other cities. The City Council passed this ordinance just before many moped owners arrived back for the school year so that it would meet limited opposition. Sponsors of the ordinance included Ledell Zellers, Michael Verveer, Zach Wood, Rebecca Kemble, and Paul Soglin. Show Madison City Council that you oppose this measure by signing the petition and contacting your city council members!
