(2) Use of micromobility devices is prohibited on all pedestrian overpasses, interior building spaces, parking structures, parking structure ramps, all stairways, steps, ledges, benches, planting areas, any other fixtures, and in any other posted area.
(3) Micromobility devices may be ridden and used on sidewalks outside the prohibited areas when a bike path is not provided, subject to the restrictions described in subsection (9) of this section.
(4) When operated in high-traffic or congested pedestrian areas, including building plazas, pedestrian malls, and sidewalks, motorized or electric-assisted micromobility devices must:
(a) Respond to automatic controls as described in subsection (9) of this section; or
(b) Be operated only using human propulsion.
(5) Operators must move at a safe speed and yield to pedestrians at all times. Reckless or negligent operation of micromobility devices on any part of campus is prohibited.
