Correspondingly, is it illegal to use a hoverboard in public?
It is currently illegal to ride powered scooters - which can travel up to 30mph - on public roads or pavements, but the government has said the traffic laws are "a barrier to innovation" and is considering changing them.
Furthermore, where can I ride a hoverboard? Currently, no one is allowed to ride their self-balancing scooter on any road or road-related area, such as footpaths or strips adjacent to roads. Ignoring these rules can lead to a $319 fine for riding on a footpath, or $637 fine for riding on a road.
Furthermore, what states are Hoverboards illegal in?
It's illegal. States such as New York have banned the use of hoverboards due to the fact that they are considered motor vehicles. According to New York City, any device with wheels and is powered by an electric or a gasoline motor and is able to propel itself without human intervention is a motor vehicle.
Do you need a license for a hoverboard?
CPS have confirmed that you should not ride Hoverboards on public streets. Self-balancing Scooters are powered vehicles and for this reason require a licence to use on the public roads. So Hoverboards are not illegal providing that you ride them in private areas such as in the home, garden or any other private land.
