Traffic Laws for Motor Scooter Riders in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs traffic laws apply to motor scooters the same as they do motorcycles. If someone is riding a two-wheel vehicle in traffic, they are held to the same standards as motorcyclists. If someone has a low-power scooter with an engine size of 50 ccs or less, they do not qualify as a motorcyclist under state law. However, they are required to have a basic driver’s license to operate that low-power scooter on public streets.

Why are Motor Scooters So Dangerous?

Motor scooters are potentially dangerous because of the lack of training required. If it is a low-power scooter, then they do not need an “M” endorsement. The driver may be less trained in how to operate a two-wheel vehicle on public streets than a motorcyclist with an “M” endorsement on their license.

Additionally, their vehicle is not going to go as fast as other vehicles, making them more vulnerable if other drivers do not expect them to be going the speed they are going. Otherwise, a lot of the injuries an individual may sustain in a scooter accident may be similar to those involved in a crash on a motorcycle or a bicycle.

The biggest danger with a low-power scooter that differs from motorcycles is that they do not go at the same speed as traffic. Additionally, motor scooters may be somewhat less visible or expected by other motorists driving passenger vehicles because they are much lower to the ground than other traffic.  This makes riders of motor scooters more vulnerable to collisions with other vehicles.

Recoverable Damages in Motor Scooter Accident Cases

After someone sustains injuries while driving a motor scooter in Colorado Springs, a person can pursue a lawsuit with the help of an attorney. All of these claims can be the same as those made by a motorcyclist or anyone else injured in a motor vehicle accident. These may include medical expenses, mileage for treatment, pain and suffering, lost wages, and injuries for permanent impairment. As well as other damages.

In a motorcyclist or scooter accident, there is probably more risk of scarring because the body is more exposed in the crash, and so a claimant may be able to recover for scarring damages. Finally, an injured person may recover for the effects the incident had on their personal life with their family, their ability to complete household chores, their leisure activities, and their recreational hobbies.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.

“I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.”

Big thanks to Mr. Jake Kimbell and his team for their assistance with my case. He helped me through an incredibly challenging part of my life, and most importantly helped navigate through the convoluted legal channels of my case. I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.

"If you are hesitant to retain an attorney, stop stressing it - call these guys!"

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
