In California, electric kick scooters are required to go in the bike 
lane if there's a bike lane and the speed limit is at most 25 mph. The 
law distinguishes electric kick scooters from unmotorized kick scooters. 
Enforcement is entirely another matter.


In the San Francisco Bay Area, I sometimes see facilities designated for 
rentable electric kick scooters, but signs use "scooter" as shorthand. 
It's unlikely that someone would mistake it for a Vespa parking lot, but 
I suppose someone could use it to park their personal kick scooter if 
they aren't worried about it getting stolen.


This sign in Ohio bans all kick scooters along with the self-balancing 
scooters known as "hoverboards". It's a one-off sign on private 
property; I don't think this specific sign is common, but variations 
surely exist elsewhere.
