In my state massachuetts a drivers license is needed to use an electric bike, I dont have an electric bike. But federal law says something like this
Federal law says that an electrically driven bicycle is considered a "bicycle" and the laws of bicycles
o Electrically driven bicycle has less than 750 watt motor
o Functional pedals
o Max speed is less than 20mph
· The Federal law shall supersede any State law or requirement with respect to low-speed
So does federal law override massachuetts law?
