An article in this morning’s AZ Republic reports that a 52-year old woman was riding her motorized bicycle on the sidewalk and proceeded into a crosswalk where she collided with an automobile. The article cites “Authorities” as saying riding a motorized bicycle on the sidewalk is illegal. I hope that was an accurate quote from City or State law, though I worry this is a slap-dash interpretation of law. A motor on a bicycle does not make it a motor vehicle; see e.g. Is a Moped a Motor Vehicle? What about a Motorized Bicycle?.
Can anyone elaborate?
