Judge Rejects Lawsuit Over Rehoboth Motor Scooter Permit

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH, Del. - A US district judge has rejected a lawsuit that challenged Rehoboth Beach's parking permit requirement for motor scooters.

According to court documents, Lawrence Myslewski, a Dover Street Resident, challenged the $40 permit because he felt it was unfair for beach commissioners to impose a fee for motor scooters but not for cars.

Rehoboth Beach Commissioners say they implemented the fee for safety purposes. In the past, scooters could park for free at sidewalk bike racks, and scooter owners could ride up the sidewalk ramps to do so. However, it led scooter owners to feel that it was fine to use all of the town's side walks for parking, or even riding, which caused a safety hazard.

Commissioners argue that motor scooter owners can avoid the fee by parking in a metered space and feeding the meter.
