Pennsylvania Bill Would Exempt E-Bikes From Insurance, Registration
State Sen. Matt Smith announced legislation today that would clarify the rules for pedal-assist electric bicycles in the state vehicle code.
Senate Bill 997 would treat electric bicycles the same as regular bicycles, meaning riders are not required to have insurance or register the two-wheeler.
The need for an explanation arose when police officers began citing individuals driving pedal-assist electric bicycles, believing that riders should adhere to motor scooter rules that require insurance and registration, said Mr. Smith, D-Mt. Lebanon.
