Police have been seen periodically visiting the steep street today, and Lime has made it a non-service zone due to it being a "high risk area".
One person has already been filmed riding down the steepest street in the world, and a Lime spokeswoman said the company strongly discouraged anyone from copying him.
" We are relieved to see the rider did not harm himself or anyone else on his journey down Baldwin Street.
"We would hate to see any of our riders injure themselves or others due to taking risks like this,"
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said police had been periodically checking the street just to make sure people were using their common sense.
It was up to individuals and the company to make sure the scooters were being used as intended and police would intervene when necessary, Snr Sgt Dinnissen said.
