Seven people are facing fines after riding e-scooters on Ottawa sidewalks.

Ottawa Police Sergeant Mark Gatien with the service's traffic division says they've been getting numerous complaints from members of the public about e-scooters being used on local sidewalks, so they assigned an officer to e-scooter sidewalk enforcement.

Seven tickets were issued Monday, at $180 a piece.
