why do scooters get re branded with very little change two or more times a year?
In the USA state legislation has been written for escooters by fortune 500 companies that rent them in major cities.
as defined by the law: an electric scooter shall not exceed 20 MPH. the motor must be 750 Watts or lower. It has no petals. it shall not exceed 20MPH/35KMH In city limits. some states added that their can not be a seat while other states said you have to be standing on a floor board.
So unless your riding you scooter on private property while going over 20 MPH.. you are required to have a motor cycle license, insurance, license plate, registration, tabs for your plate, and some states a helmet as well.
The fines can go over $10,000 and a year in prison
or as little as over night in jail and $50 with points on your license and an impounded vehicle.
lucky for me.. my scooter can out run the cops
