Unregistered Vehicle Citation
Tom asked: I got a ticket in South Dayton Beach, Florida for unregistered motor vehicle and for riding in the bike lane. I would like to know why I got the tickets and how do I not get them again. I still want to ride my motorized bike. Can you help me?
We can help you understand the situation, but can’t advise you to continue to ride your gas-motor bike.
Bicycles with electric assist motors are legal if the meet the statutory definition of “bicycle”. Bicycles with gas assist motors are not legal vehicles unless they meet all the requirements and are registered as a moped or motorcycle, hence the unregistered vehicle citation. See this post:
Bicycle lanes are for the preferential or exclusive use of bicycles. Apparently you were cited since your vehicle is not a bicycle. See the posts under “Bike Lanes”.
