Recently, I have received many requests for information in regards to riding scooters on city streets and so I am providing an update to my September 2013 column.
Motor scooters and mopeds have become common on the streets of Carson City. I am regularly asked if mopeds and motor scooters are legal as many are unregistered. Yes, some scooters may be operated upon the roadways however, there are restrictions. First, you cannot operate the scooter in a travel lane where the speed zone exceeds the scooters maximum speed.
