39:4-14.15 Issuance of placard, sticker authorizing operation of motorized scooter by handicapped person; regulations; definition.

/2. a. Upon request, the Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission shall issue to any holder of a handicapped person identification card, a placard or sticker of such size and design as shall be determined by the chief administrator in consultation with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services in the Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Division of Disability Services in the Department of Human Services, indicating that a handicapped person identification card has been issued to the person designated therein and that the person so designated may operate the motorized scooter on public streets as provided in subsection e. of this section. The placard or sticker shall be displayed in such manner as the chief administrator shall determine on the motorized scooter used by the named individual with a mobility-related disability.

/b./Any motorized scooter operated by a person with a mobility-related disability shall be registered with the municipality in which the operator resides. As a condition for such registration, the owner or operator shall produce or display appropriate proof that a policy of liability insurance is in effect for that motorized scooter. The municipality or county may impose a reasonable fee to cover the costs of registration.

/c./Any person with a mobility-related disability who operates a motorized scooter shall wear a properly fitted and fastened helmet which meets the Consumer Product Safety Commission standard or such other standard, as appropriate.

/d./Any motorized scooter operated by a person with a mobility-related disability shall be equipped with a brake that will enable the operator to stop the scooter in a safe and effective manner.

/e./A properly registered motorized scooter may be operated by a properly designated person with a mobility-related disability on any public street with a posted speed limit not exceeding 25 miles per hour. If the authority having jurisdiction over the public street determines that a properly registered motorized scooter operated by a properly designated person with a mobility-related disability may be operated on a public street with a posted speed limit in excess of 25 miles per hour, but not exceeding 35 miles per hour, or any portion thereof, without posing a danger to the safety and well-being of the operator of the motorized scooter or impeding the safe flow and operation of traffic, a properly registered motorized scooter may be operated on that designated public street, or designated portion thereof, by a properly designated person. A municipality or county may make such a determination by ordinance or resolution, as appropriate, but such ordinance or resolution shall not require the approval of the Commissioner of Transportation.

/f./No motorized scooter that is capable of a maximum speed of more than 15 miles per hour shall be registered or operated on a public street under the provisions of this section.

/g./Neither the State nor any municipality or county, nor any agency, official or employee thereof, shall assume responsibility for or incur liability for any injury to person or property caused by any act of a person with a mobility-related disability who operates a motorized scooter upon its designated municipal, county or State property.

/h./For the purposes of this section, motorized scooter shall mean a gas or electric powered scooter or mini scooter which is capable of a maximum speed of not more than 15 miles per hour on a flat surface. Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize or permit the registration or operation of any pocket bike, super pocket bike, sport scooter, mini chopper, mini motorcycle, or motorized skateboard on any public street by a person with a mobility-related disability.
