Seven additional states have passed liberalized laws governing motorized bicycles (moped), bringing to 21 the total number of states in which mopeds are sanctioned. Despite differences in definition of the moped, all the states restrict either the capacity or horsepower of the vehicle to keep maximum speeds under 25-30 mph. None of the states require helmets or insurance, and almost all have a minimum age requirement. Registration rules vary widely and licensing varies according to the individual state's motor vehicle codes.
