What are e-bikes and e-scooters’ responsibilities?
- Ride in the same direction as traffic and obey all traffic lights, signs, and signals.
- It is advised to wear helmets to minimize potential head injury. Risers 17 years of age or younger must use helmet. Violators of the helmet law will receive warnings for their first offense. Parents or legal guardians may be fined a maximum of $25 for the 1st offense (after a warning has been issued) and a maximum of $100 for subsequent offense(s).
- Park devices without blocking pedestrian and/or wheelchair access.
- You should not ride on sidewalks. Off-road trails generally do not allow motorized bicycles, but may allow e-bikes and e-scooter. Check out local ordinances for any rules that may affect you in your municipality or county. Be sure to ride slowly in areas with pedestrians.
