I downloaded the most current information on scooter ordinances and laws by state. Within each state, local authorities can impose different rules. We want to stay on the right side of the law as we enjoy our rides. We will try know in advance where we can ride and other limits as to speed, helmets, insurance, licenses etc. These rules are so fluid that it’s a trick to keep up. We only take them on bike paths and park roads that don’t have much traffic. Really not interested in city or regular road riding anyway. Lights and mirrors and (helmets almost always) are in use. We take our walkie talkies sometimes with a headset so we can talk to each other as we ride. That’s another way to stay a little safer.
