Motorized Vehicles on Sidewalks
Frank asked: I tried looking up what the fine is for riding an electric bicycle (under electric power) on a sidewalk. Can you tell me what that may be?
The violation would be:
s. 316.1995 – Driving upon Sidewalk or Bicycle Path
(1) No person shall drive any vehicle other than by human power upon a bicycle path, sidewalk ….
(3) This section does not apply to motorized wheelchairs.
A violation of this section is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation as provided in chapter 318.
The statutory penalty would probably be:
s. 318.18 Amount of Penalties
(3)(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, $60 for all moving violations not requiring a mandatory appearance.
There would be additional court costs that could be $100 or more. You should check with your local law enforcement agency for more information.
