Ordinance Number 2014- 432 was passed in June 2014. The city launched an educational campaign with pamphlet distribution through various events and at the Norman S. Edelcup / Sunny Isles Beach K-8 and Alonso and Tracy Mourning High School. The required 90 day educational period ended in October and the order to enforce the ordinance was issued in November.
This ordinance restricts the use of skateboards, scooters, razors, segways and other wheeled devices along two major thoroughfares within Sunny Isles Beach; Collins Avenue and Sunny Isles Boulevard. The police department has been tasked with enforcing this ordinance however they prefer compliance. “Our goal is to keep our sidewalks safe for all whether they are walking or using a wheeled device. We strive for safety through compliance,” said Chief Maas, “We will continue with our educational efforts as we encounter violators.”
Violators may be issued a warning, a citation that requires the violator to provide community service, or a citation that carries a fine.
