Drivers of motorized scooters in Indiana will encounter tighter regulations below a measure signed into law by Gov. Mike Pence, although an insurance necessity is not amid them.
The new law will demand scooter operators to get license plates from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, have legitimate state ID and pass a road indicator check. The new principles take effect in January.
Some legislators and police agencies have pushed for many years for additional scooter laws, even though the new law will not call for that scooter drivers have insurance coverage as several had sought.
Evansville police Sgt. Jason Cullum tells the Evansville Courier & Press the changes will have a optimistic impact.
The law keeps the minimal age to operate scooters at 15, while raising their maximum pace to 35 mph and banning them from interstates.
