    Motorized skateboard use is primarily covered by city laws. In general, city laws require riders to be at least 14 years old, follow traffic signs and rules and wear a helmet while riding a motorized skateboard.
     
    The Phoenix City Council approved a ban on ALL motorized skateboards, scooters and motorized play vehicles. They cannot be operated on public right of ways, including ALL streets and sidewalks.
     
    No person can operate a toy vehicle (less than 5 horsepower) on city streets (Section 19-23). Tempe City codes also state that no person other than the owner of the motorized skateboard is authorized to ride it and that no passengers are allowed on it.
     
    ·          Prohibits the operation of any motorized skateboard by any person under 14

    ·          Parental permission form is required to be carried at all times by children riding motorized skateboards.
    ·          Children under 14 are prohibited from riding motorized skateboards.
    ·          Prohibits riding motorized skateboards on sidewalks and on any private property where owners prohibit it.
    ·          Motorized skateboards cannot go on roads with speed limits over 30 miles per hour and can only be operated from 7am to 8pm.
    ·          Users cannot carry fuel or any other packages while riding it, nor alter the fuel system by adding fuel packs.
    ·          Mesa also requires motorized skateboard riders under 18 to wear a helmet, shoes (no sandles!) and goggles.

    I ride my Goped® to work all the time. This is right here in Phoenix. I heard that it is illegal though. Just be responsible and dont go dodging in and out of traffic use prudent speed when in heavy traffic areas and wear eye protection. Done Done Done.
