Is It Legal to Ride an Electric Scooter on a Sidewalk?

You have to be licensed or otherwise legally permitted to operate one. This usually requires a background check and a test administered by a licensing authority. If your parents have not been licensed as drivers, you will need to get your own license before you can legally drive one. Even though there is a limited pilot program currently available in California, it is recommended that you get your own license while you are still young. Having a license while you are young, helps make sure that you will be financially responsible once you start driving your electric scooter around.

You will also need to follow certain rules in many areas around the country when it comes to electric scooter laws. Some areas will require riders to obey posted speed limits, others will have restrictions on the weight of the rider or engine. When in rural areas or on highways, it is usually illegal for riders to exceed the posted speed limit unless you are in a special traffic light system.

Not all cities and towns have similar electric scooter laws. Each city has its own regulations. This means that riders must check with their local governments to find out what the regulations in their area are. You may find that there are no speed limits or other restrictions, but the local governments will enforce whatever they feel is necessary to protect the roads from injury and damage.

Riding electric scooter legally means that you need to follow the rules of the road just like everyone else. If you are found to be operating your scooter without a valid license, you could face fines and even jail time. If you are caught without a current license, it is possible that you will be taken to court and possibly have your registration and all personal items confiscated. If you are not wearing proper safety gear and clothing, this can lead to serious injuries and even death.

To keep safe on the roads, electric scooter riders should always carry their driver’s license, registration, and some type of personal protection. While it may seem that some riders do not need much gear, it is important to keep your personal items in case of an accident. You should wear a helmet to protect your head in case of an accident, and other personal items such as money, cell phones, and camera to take pictures. Bikers often use their cell phones to send text messages to help them get a ride, but it is illegal to use a cell phone while riding a motorcycle. It is also illegal to text or talk on your cell phone while riding.

Even if you are licensed to ride a motorized scooter, you must always obey the rules of the road. You should never operate a scooter or moped on roads with speed limits greater than fifteen miles per hour. Some cities have actually set up roadblocks to prevent motorized scooter riders from operating vehicles that are over speed. Even if you are only operating a moped, you should always obey all traffic laws and drive defensively.

Currently, there is no legislation that directly addresses electric scooters being operated on sidewalks. However, if the legislation changes, electric scooters would have to meet certain criteria before being allowed to operate on sidewalks. These guidelines would likely include making sure they are equipped with amber lights, functioning headlights, functioning taillights, and working brake lights. Currently, if a person is caught on a sidewalk with an electric scooter, they could be ticketed and face fines up to $400. Some cities have threatened to sue local municipalities that fail to allow electric scooter riders to ride on sidewalks.
