Motorized Scooters: Legislative Intent
21220. (a) The Legislature finds and declares both of the following:
(1) This state has severe traffic congestion and air pollution problems, particularly in its cities, and finding ways to reduce these problems is of paramount importance.
(2) Motorized scooters that meet the definition of Section 407.5 produce no emissions and, therefore, do not contribute to increased air pollution or increase traffic congestion.
(b) It is the intent of the Legislature in adding this article to promote the use of alternative low-emission or no-emission transportation.
Added Sec. 5, Ch. 722, Stats. 1999. Effective January 1, 2000.

However, riding in San Francisco they are pretty lenient. I have not been stopped and see quite a few cops during the day when riding. I do a lot of riding on the street after work but usually only for about a half mile stretch where traffic is pretty much stopped. I end up riding with some of the bicyclists. Going to work I'm on the sidewalk and the street depends on the street.
For the most part, I give cars the right of way and only ride when there are no cars and/or I'm riding behind the car. If I'm on the side and need to move in I'll signal to the driver. Can get dangerous if your not careful. Rather then being in a rush (usually I am) I try to just let the cars go first. I definitely don't want to get hit by a car or bus LOL.
(Prohibitions: Operate a motorized scooter without a valid driver’s license or instruction permit.)
that would mean all the little kids riding a Razor or Ezip are breaking the law.
