Moving to Charleston soon for a big boy job. Got my hobbit up and running perfectly and will be getting my tomos to do the same.

I was researching south carolina laws and found this tidbit...

SECTION 56-5-3740. Modification of equipment to increase horsepower or speed. [SC ST SEC 56-5-3740]

It is unlawful for a person to modify or change the equipment of a moped so that the vehicle exceeds two brake horsepower and produces speeds in excess of thirty miles an hour on level ground. A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than two hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than thirty days.

(TL;DR: Modify your shit, get arrested.)

There was also something about needing a rearview mirror something something and a brake light that works with brake handles something something

I guess my question is.. is this shit enforced? Should I be scared to ride around downtown charleston?
