Allowance for wheelchairs, scooters to continue

Headline Goes Here

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - After public input and staff recommendations, the Hollywood Commission unanimously approved a change in the municipal beach ordinances on the Beach Broadwalk.

The use of any device that is not operated exclusively by humans will now be strictly prohibited.

This change impacts the use of motorized vehicles, such as motorized Trikkes and motorized bikes.

However, wheelchairs and scooters will continue to be allowed by federal ADA regulations.

While signs signage will be put up and literature passed out by park rangers, the city is allowing a short grace period of a few weeks to make sure all are informed.

Those who violate the ordinance can face civil penalties ranging from $50 to $500.
