Popular Post GQS Posted October 12, 2015 Popular Post Share Posted October 12, 2015 We have a new law in effect for 1/1/2016 for California. It is geared towards the electric skateboard crowd but is written in such a way that it applies to many PEV's including our electric unicycles.https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160AB604It basically says the "electrically motorized board" is "313.5. An “electrically motorized board” is any wheeled device that has a floorboard designed to be stood upon when riding that is not greater than 60 inches deep and 18 inches wide, is designed to transport only one person, and has an electric propulsion system averaging less than 1,000 watts, the maximum speed of which, when powered solely by a propulsion system on a paved level surface, is no more than 20 miles per hour. The device may be designed to also be powered by human propulsion."Some caveats are that you need to wear a helmet of some sort, and must be at least 16 years old. Local municipalities can still ban this locally but must have local legislation that specifically bans it. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
