HARRISBURG – Electric low-speed scooters would be regulated within PA’s vehicle code under legislation approved by the state Senate. Electric low-speed scooters are small electric or human-powered vehicles with two or three wheels, handlebars, and a floorboard that can be stood upon while riding. They weigh less than 100 pounds and go no more than 15 mph on level ground. The scooters provide low-cost transportation to millions of riders and help relieve traffic congestion and pollution. Senate Bill 892 would allow certain municipalities to designate where low-speed scooters could be used, though they would be prohibited on any road with a posted speed limit of at least 35 mph. The scooters would be limited to operating on specified roadways, pedal-cycle lanes or pedal-cycle paths at a speed no greater than 15 mph. The bill was amended to increase the age requirement for scooter operation from 16 to 18 years of age. The bill is now before the PA House.
