Kennewick Police fielded this question on their Facebook page. So what's the deal? I see these things in action all the time and wonder what the laws are about them. I've actually thought of getting an electric assist bicycle. So where can people ride these motorized scooters? Do they have to stay on the street but in the shoulder? What kind of street can they be on, legally? Are they okay on sidewalks? Thanks for covering this, KPD!
