If you read the actual section underneath that grid, you will see the correct info.
The only way I can think of to make a bike like that would be have a level sensor that would cause the motor to cut out at 20mph when on level ground.
I don't have a problem with that law.
Most electric bikes would strain going 20 mph up hills and 20 mph is fine for me on level ground.
Going down hill an electric bicycle can go as fast as the posted speed limit in Florida. ( not level )
Sounds fair. In some states people can not go over 20 mph on an electric bicycle. I think they want people going electric in Florida !
The Florida electric bicycle founding fathers have given us a lot of freedom with electric bicycles. Lets see what we do with that freedom !
Free electric charge stations.
Free electric car charging stations open in Delray Wednesday
And I agree about Wiki . Online info about Florida electric bicycles is all over the place !
No thanks to craigslist sellers in Florida that post every day it is legal to drive gas motorized bicycles and members of forums that more or less say screw the law and drive them anyway in Florida !
The law as it is written is very simple and I have read it over and over. Got it !
