Florida Motor Scooters
The State of Florida is a wonderful place to live and visit. For short trips around town and college campuses, a motor scooter is a great way to get around. Motor scooters are compact, affordable, great on gas, and just convenient especially for short trips. Most motor scooters out on the road and in the community have a small horsepower and can only go so fast. As such, other motor vehicles are much faster. Furthermore, the size of even a compact motor vehicle is much larger than a motor scooter. When there is a crash or an incident, the motor scooter operator can suffer serious permanent injuries.
In the State of Florida, there are not much in the way of regulations or insurance requirements for a motor scooter. In fact, insurance is not required at all for property damage, medical expenses, or liability coverage. Also, operators / riders who are 16 years of age and older are not required to wear a helmet or other safety gear. Unlike motorcycles, there are no special training courses or license endorsements required for motor scooters. These regulations or better stated lack of regulations apply to motor scooters that have an engine displacement of 50 cubic centimeters or less.
In Florida, it is estimated that over 200,000 motor vehicle accidents or crashes take place every year. When a crash involves a motor scooter operator, the injuries can be quite serious. In the aftermath of a motor scooter accident, there are a number of challenges especially if the motor scooter operator did not carry insurance on the motor scooter to cover the property damages or medical bills. There is a well known campaign which advised drivers to Watch Out for Motorcycles. This advice can also apply to Motor Scooters which are often operated by younger and less trained riders than those who operate motorcycles.
