Most laws are created to limit / prohibit certain actions / vehicles.
Each motor is calibrated / limited in speed to 20 mph..
(Unless I'm going downhill and gravity takes over, but then the motors cut out and don't provide propulsion..)
(Florida) state statute says bicycle with an electric helper motor...
No Florida statute exists with a "2 motor classification"...
If there is no law forbidding it, it's legal or you use the closest definition..
Mopeds have pedals and use gas motors and are capable of doing over 20 and up to 30mph.
Scooters don't have pedals..
Scooters are technically "Motorcycles" in Florida...
Even under 50cc scooters are classified as such.. There is a technical memo in the state archives about it.
(No mopeds nor scooters run dual motors..)
If you were on a jury and and given the above facts, what would you classify my bicycle as..
Electric Bicycle? Moped? Scooter? Motorcycle? Or an undefined classification of vehicle?
