Federal Law HR 727 Supersedes All State Laws

The Federal Government has decreed that our scooters are 100% legal to drive in all 50 states.

We recommend that you always carry a copy of Federal Law HR 727 with you and show it to any law enforcement officer who might question your legal right to drive your scooter. This should immediately clear up any of their concerns.

Federal Law HR 727 reads:

The Federal law shall supersede any State law or requirement with respect to low-speed electric bicycles. (The state must regulate the electric bicycle as a bicycle)


(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, low-speed electric bicycles are consumer products within the meaning of section 3(a)(1) and shall be subject to the Commission regulations published at section 1500.18(a)(12) and part 1512 of title 16, Code of Federal Regulations.

(b) For the purpose of this section, the term `low-speed electric bicycle' means a two or three-wheeled vehicle with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts (1 h.p.), whose maximum speed on a paved level surface, when powered solely by such a motor while ridden by an operator who weighs 170 pounds, is less than 20 mph."
