FYI: In 2001 Congress passed legislation permitting any person over the age of 62 or disabled to ride a motorized bicycle or tricycle on public roads so long as the gasoline engine was less than 50cc, or the electric motor is less than 750 watts. Maximum speed allowed is 20MPH, and it must have head, brake, an rear lights, turn signals, and horn. No drivers license or registration is required.
These are street legal in all 50 states, and most states permit more lenient laws. For instance, (surprise) CA allows a top speed of 30 MPH, anyone over the age of 16, is legal without a DL. However, on streets with Bike Lanes, a helmet is required.
Man this is crazy!!!
