E-motorcycles in Park City: PCPD offers a cautionary tale for parents

Police warn about potential accidents and safety requirements for young riders

PARK CITY, Utah — With the growing popularity of e-bikes on Park City trails, the Police Department has issued a warning to parents about the potential for accidents.

While e-bikes are a fun and convenient way to get around, e-motorcycles are faster and harder to control than traditional pedal-assisted e-bikes. Here are the laws and tips to stay safe:

  • E-motorcycles are not allowed on Park City trails.
  • All riders under 18 years old must wear a helmet when riding any kind of e-bike.
  • E-motorcycles must also be registered as Off-Highway Vehicles (OHVs) or be street-legal, registered, and insured, and riders must have valid driver’s licenses.
  • All riders must also be familiar with and understand the operation of an e-motorcycle, including how to turn it on and off and how to adjust the brakes.
