Are Electric Scooters Legal in Brownsville?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In the absence of specific ordinances established by Brownsville, electric scooter riders should refer to Texas state laws that regulate the operation of these vehicles. According to state legislation, electric scooters are classified as electric bicycles, allowing them to operate on roads, bike lanes, and paths where bicycles are permitted. Local amendments or changes might not be captured immediately, so ensuring compliance with the most recent local directives is advisable.

Reference Link

Currently no city specific ordinances exist. In this case the state laws currently in place offer the best reference to legality.

Max Speed

The max speed for electric scooters as defined by Texas state law is typically up to 20 miles per hour.

Minimum Age

There is no explicit minimum age for electric scooter riders stipulated by Texas state law, but manufacturers often recommend a minimum rider age of 16. Minors should be supervised, and age requirements may vary based on the rental company's policies.

Helmets Required? 

Helmet use is not mandated by Texas state law for all riders, but minors are encouraged to wear helmets for safety, and certain municipalities may have stricter requirements.
