Will not stand for this ban on Rental Scooters on Panama City Beach

This petition had 1,004 supporters

We are California Cycles, a local American owned company. We have been in business for 32 years in Panama City Beach providing scooter rental services to the community and jobs for 30 plus employees who depend on their jobs to provide for their children and families. The Panama City Beach city council is trying to pass a law to ban scooter rentals in Panama City Beach & shut down not only our business, but numerous other scooter rental businesses in the area. If the city council passes this law, it will be detrimental to hundreds of local families that own or work at these scooter rental companies and to the community as a whole. We are asking our fellow members of the community where we live, work and love, to help support us in our efforts to ban the passing of this unjustifiable law.

On May 11, 2017 the Panama City Beach City Council has it on the agenda to have a 5p.m. scooter curfew and to ban scooters permanently on Sept. 2020. The Council says the main reason for this attempted ban is because ticketing the scooters takes too much of the officer's time. They are also attempting to make a connection between scooters and the drug activities, which is simply preposterous. 

There are five scooter companies locally that will lose their livelihoods and approximately 100 people will lose their jobs. Please join us by signing this petition to keep scooters on the beach.
