Motorized Bicycles

Unless there's something I don't understand, I believe that would fall under the definition of moped/motorized bike. Since there are no pedals, a driver's license is required.

That's very similar to the one I pictured.

The sad thing is that all the neighbor kids zoom up and down the street on it, barefoot and not wearing helmets. They often have 2 or 3 kids piled on it, all while their parents are sitting in the driveway "supervising." Oh, and we have a police officer and sheriff's deputy living on the street whose kids join in the fun.:thumbsdown:

Yeah, well regardless of age requirements, helmets are a must for anyone under 18. (And required for motorized things over 18.) Passengers are illegal, too, it looks like.

I honestly don't know.

I'm all about safety and stuff (obviously) but even I'm wondering if 16 and/or driver's license is a bit much for these.

Passenger? I don't know. I suppose it would depend a lot on who the driver was (adult vs another kid).

Helmet? I don't know. I'd probably go with whatever is legally required to drive it.

I was just at Toys R Us and looked at their motorized bike/scooter section. There was a rather hidden generic sign saying that the use of them might be restricted by law and people should check. I'm surprised--and yet not--that a toy store in California would sell those without any kind of notice.
