The state does not require riders on scooters or mopeds to wear a helmet, as long as their vehicle isn't capable of going over 30 miles per hour.
Recently, however, more of these vehicles are being classified as motorcycles. Florida law does require motorcycle riders to wear a helmet, unless they are over the age of 21 and have a 10- thousand dollar medical insurance rider.
Gainesville police encourages drivers to take extra precautions when sharing the road with mopeds and scooters.
