Sidenote: not actually a Tesla, just paint and decal
I live in Texas, Dallas/Plano area specifically. My question is: would I be able to ride this on public sidewalks? I have read up on electric scooter laws, and electric scooters have access to sidewalks(and this is true, I've driven past several cop cars on my electric stand-up scooter and they didn't pull me over). (<- source: https://swagtron.com/news/are-electric-scooters-legal/ [This is my stand-up scooter's manufacturer]) However, this doesn't look like a stand-up scooter, but more like a moped (google image moped, some look similar to this, some don't)
(Source: https://www.jrlawfirm.com/blog/texas-scooter-moped-laws/ ) Texas moped laws (50cc engine or less):
Scooter users must acquire a scooter license – which involves a written test.
The Razor has NO engine, so I personally wouldn't classify it as a moped. However, a police officer might not know that at first glance (despite the Tesla stickers and whatnot) Would I get pulled over for this and if I do, would I get fined or arrested for having no license? I do not intend to drive on the street, only sidewalk.
It has a top speed of around 10 or 15 mph.
The motor is a 24V 250W motor
There are a total of 4 batteries, 2 12v 14Ah batteries wired in series for 24v hooked to the main circut, and 2 12v 9Ah batteries wired in series for 24v for getting home when the main batteries are dead. The reserve set of batteries can be seen under the seat, which opens up
Other than the motor, which sounds nothing like an engine, the scooter makes no noise
We added tail lights and a head light.
There is a battery meter on the dash board.
