In Indiana, "electric foot scooter" are defined as vehicles that:
- Has handlebars and a floorboard to stand on while riding

Electric scooters have all the same rights and responsibilities as a bicycle. You can ride them in the street and on bike paths, and don't need insurance or a license. They are not legally considered motor vehicles. Helmets are required for riders under 18 years old.
