AB 604 was approved by Governor Brown on October 11, 2015. It effectively regulates the use of hoverboards! The hoverboard law requires that all operators of electrically motorized boards (which includes hoverboards, swagways, self-balancing scooters, and personal transporters) to:
Wear a bicycle helmet while operating it on a highway, bikeway, or any other public bicycle path, SIDEWALK, or trail; and
Shall limit his or her speed to 15 mph or less and if on a highway, the highway speed limit must be 35 mph or less; and
The operator MUST be 16 years or older; and
The board must be equipped with safety equipment such as white head or front lights, rear red reflectors, and yellow or white side reflectors.
