Actually, mopeds are driven by engines (the "ped" is a reference to pedaling them to turn the engine). By electric scooter I meant these electric things people ride while standing.

I don't know about all of California, but you're wrong about Santa Monica. It is indeed illegal to ride bicycles on the sidewalks in Santa Monica.

From the Santa Monica Police website: https://www.santamonicapd.org/Content.aspx?id=2549

Ride on the road. Sidewalks are for pedestrians and in Santa Monica, bicycles are prohibited on sidewalks. SMMC 3.12.540(a)

Not that bicyclists care.

There is actually no statewide law on bicycle riding on sidewalks unless there is a motor running, municipal codes only apply to sidewalks owned by the municipality where signs are posted as dismount or no bicycle zones. It doesnít apply for sidewalks on state highways.

Though cities could always remove/confiscate these scooters parked all over the sidewalks, as they are really an obstruction stored there on city sidewalks. I mean if they could technically unlock them from the app and transport them somewhere and lock them somewhere where others cannot acces them.

These app companies regardless of whether itís scooter, rideshare, or food delivery seems to get away with everything and the government seem to bend the rules to justify their actions for some reason.

These scooters simply need to be banned. They're a massive nuisance everywhere they exist.
