Are Electric Scooters Legal in Cape Coral?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Cape Coral doesn't have specific local regulations for electric scooters, which means that Florida state laws govern their use. In Florida, electric scooters are allowed on streets and bike paths but must adhere to the same rules and regulations as bicycles. Riders are encouraged to follow local traffic laws and exercise caution while operating electric scooters on roads shared with other vehicles.

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

Under Florida state law, electric scooters must not exceed a top speed of 20 miles per hour on level ground.

Minimum Age

There is no specific minimum age requirement in state law for operating electric scooters, but it's recommended that riders be able to safely reach and operate all controls. Parents or legal guardians should exercise judgment regarding a minor's ability to operate an electric scooter safely.

Helmets Required? 

Florida state law requires bicycle helmet use for riders and passengers under 16 years of age. This applies to electric scooters since they fall under the same category as bicycles.
