Oh....I did email the guy who wrote the article telling him that all the laws he mentioned are correct as they apply to mopeds.

The only problem is that every example he gives in his article, like the Vespa he opens with....IS A SCOOTER.

Mass has 3 categories for 'scooters' in terms of how the RMV sees them and registers them:

1) Motorcycles. Anything that is 50cc or greater, and can go over 30mph is techically a motorcycle, needs insurance and a motorcycle's license to be opperated. The cop who snagged me on Super Moby was very clear about this.

2) Mopeds. Like us. 30mph top speed, under 50cc, and apparently no faster road speed of 25mph. Which is weird. Whatever. Can be used in bike lanes and any legal road other than highways and off road bike paths. Can also be parked on sidewalks.

3) Motorized scooters. Like the dumb things you stand on and push with one foot. A goped.

I smoked the poor author about his article....he tried to explain that his information was correct, which it was regarding mopeds....but clearly he meant to be talking about scooters since he was referring the to great trend in Boston of mass scooter influx.

I told him to come down to The Otherside tomorrow and see what a moped is. Think he'll come?
