ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Those electric scooters now have a speed limit in Forest Park.
Former Alderman and current Transportation Policy Planner for the City of St. Louis, Scott Ogilvie, announced on Twitter the city has set a 10 MPH limit for those Lime, Bird, and Spin scooters within the boundaries of Forest Park.

This is so they don't cause issues on the shared-use bike paths around the park. There won't be speed limit signs or speedometers, though. Instead, the scooters will be powered down a little once GPS picks up they're in Forest Park.
