The University of Arizona announced the ban of electric scooters on campus effective immediately.

According to UA Parking and Transportation Services, if found, electric scooters are subject to fines and impoundment.

"This policy is in place because we are concerned about the safety of e-scooters and their potential to limit accessibility on campus, especially for those with disabilities," UA said. "Our goal is to mitigate e-scooters from blocking doorways, walkways, and other campus paths. Additionally, we do not want e-scooters to be brought into campus buildings, which would pose safety and accessibility concerns."
