California Moped Accidents On The Rise – States Considering New Laws

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

As the number of moped riders increase, so do the number of moped fatalities. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports a staggering increase in deaths, doubling from 2005 to 2009. A moped or scooter is generally considered a two-wheeled or three-wheeled cycle with a motor that is not capable of going faster than 30 mph.

States around the country are looking at ways to decrease these fatalities by imposing new moped regulations.Potential changes include imposing driver’s license requirements, helmet laws and including a moped or scooter in the definition of “motor vehicle” so that DUI laws apply.

California moped laws may be confusing to users and vary depending on the type of moped or scooter you ride. However all riders must have a driver’s license or learners permit to operate one. It’s best to contact an experienced California personal injury attorney if you have any questions concerning laws related to your moped use.

Where injuries occur as the result of a moped or scooter accident, laws applicable to all personal injury accidents determine whether compensation is available.

For more information, or if you have been harmed in a moped accident, contact the Law Office of Frederick J. Sette, dedicated to helping the injured for more than 23 years.
