MOTORSCOOTERS AND GO-PEDS
Motorscooters and go-peds are not considered motorcycles, however when driven on the streets or roadways a driver's license is required of the operator. In addition to a driver's license, a child under the age of 16 years must wear a helmet. The motorized vehicles may not be operated on sidewalks or bike paths.
In an effort to prevent the serious injuries and fatalities that we have seen on the news media from occurring in Sebastian, police officers have been instructed to verbally warn and inform youngsters in regard to scooter riding. We are doing this out of concern for the children who are unfamiliar with the dangers of the roadways.
Beginning March 1st officers will begin stricter enforcement by impounding illegally operated scooters and citing unlicensed operators.
