Omaha City Council Approve Measures On Hate Intimidation, Scooter Use

Jun 10, 2020

The city of Omaha is adding an ordinance to crack down on hate intimidation.  The City Council approved the measure yesterday.  The hate intimidation ordinance would make it illegal to intimidate a group or an individual because of their race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, creed, age, national origin or physical or mental disability. The City Council also approved the motor scooter ordinance yesterday.  The law requires motor scooter drivers to obey all traffic laws, be at least 18-years-old, have a valid driver's license or ID, not operate scooters on sidewalks and only operate on roads where the speed limit is 35-miles per hour or less.
