Default Re: Newbie from Marietta, GA has questions

Im in Florida and the language of our State Statutes are sufficiently broad. I also must say that its personally untested so I cant vouch for the effectiveness. The major point is what defines a bicycle, more importantly what changes the bicycle into a motorvehicle. For my defense I cite the "Any device generally recognizeable as a bicycle" and the Motorvehicle definition specifically excluding "Any bicycle". Since it was purchased as a bicycle and is not Department of transportation certified as a motorvehicle (ie frame and safety features of a moped or motorcycle) guess what?......Its just a bicycle that happens to have an engine on it and is to be treated as a bicycle. Man I hope that works!
