Local law enforcement and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation want to remind you that mopeds and smaller motor vehicles are subject to all traffic laws like cars and trucks. Assistant Police Chief Dan Brinkman says mopeds require specific equipment to operate on streets and roads.
Brinkman notes that you can drive your moped side-by-side with another moped on the street if the speed limit is 25 miles per hour or less, but you must go single file if it's more. Mopeds are banned on freeways, and drivers should be aware of other vehicles and not impede roadway traffic. Weather conditions should be considered before venturing out on your moped as well, according to Brinkman.
Brinkman adds that it is recommended that all moped drivers and passengers wear helmets, even though it is only required for those under the age of 18.
