My Son is 14 Years Old and Received a Motorized Scooter for His Birthday. May He Ride it on the Sidewalk?

Motorized scooters are small vehicles designed to be ridden standing or seated. Some have gas motors, some are electric. They are not licensed or registered with the state of Florida. Therefore, they are not permitted on the roadway or sidewalk, even if the operator has a driver's license. Although most parents are not aware of this, according to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, their use is restricted to private property.
