NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Motorized electric bicycles are becoming more popular for recreational use and for transportation. As their popularity increases, so does the chance to run afoul of local ordinances.

Beach Patrol officers for the City of North Myrtle Beach are noticing an increase in motorized e-bike usage along the sandy beaches. Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the City’s beaches. Some e-bikes can reach speeds of 20 miles per hour, creating potential dangers for families enjoying their time at the beach.

The City of North Myrtle Beach has a specific ordinance addressing the use of motorized vehicles on the beach:

Sec. 5-2. - Motor vehicles on beach.

(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to drive any motor vehicle, of any nature or description, upon the public beach within the city. This prohibition shall not apply to governmental, emergency or other authorized vehicles.

(b) This section in no way prohibits rights conferred upon the handicapped in accordance with South Carolina Code Annotated, Section 43-33-25 (1976 as amended).
