Fact Sheet for Mini-Motorbikes/Scooters
Are pocket bikes, mini-choppers or mini-motorcycles
Oregon public roads?
A: No. These vehicles are not intended for use on public streets and highways. They are manufactured for off-road use.
A mini-motorcycle, pocket bike, go-kart, all-terrain vehicle or similar motorized vehicle is not legal for use on public roads in Oregon. At least two traffic violations could apply for anyone found using such a vehicle on public roads:
- Operation of an unsafe vehicle is a Class B traffic violation (ORS 815.020), with a fine up to $360.
- Operation of a vehicle that violates equipment rules is a Class C traffic violation (ORS 815.100), with a fine up to $180.
But don’t some of these vehicles fit the legal
definition of a motorcycle?
A: Not necessarily. A motorized vehicle might fit the definition of a motorcycle and still be illegal to ride on public roads.
To be legal on public roads, motorized vehicles, including motorcycles, need to meet the U.S. Department of Transportation’s vehicle design safety and equipment requirements, which are also the standards adopted by Oregon (ORS 815.010 and 815.030).
Manufacturers that meet these requirements provide a vehicle identification number (VIN), and a manufacturer's certificate of origin, or MCO, which certifies that the vehicle meets U.S. DOT standards. Other proof of compliance with standards may be provided. For more information see Imported Motorcycle and Moped Requirements.
Oregon, like all other states, requires that if a motor vehicle is designed for use on public roads that it needs to be titled and registered. That requirement includes mounting of a license plate or plates and payment of a registration fee.
The rider must have a driver license or instruction permit. For some vehicles, such as motorcycles, the driver also must have endorsements on their driver licenses.
Q: What about scooters, mopeds, electric assisted bicycles and personal mobility devices?
A: Some of these vehicles are legal in some situations if they meet the specific definitions and restrictions in Oregon law. Also, riders must be at least 16 years old and not have driving privileges suspended or revoked.
Although a driver license is not required for motor-assisted scooters, electric assisted bicycles and personal mobility devices, riders must be at least 16 years old (ORS 807.020 and 814.512) and be eligible for driving privileges. It is also possible for a person whose driving privileges are suspended or revoked to be charged with operating any motorized vehicle while suspended/revoked - including a motor-assisted scooter - on public roads.
Driving any motor vehicle on a public road while suspended is a Class A violation with a maximum fine of $720.
Operation by a rider under 16 years of age is a Class D traffic violation with a maximum fine of $90.
A parent or legal guardian of a child younger than 16 years old who authorizes or knowingly allows a child to operate a motor-assisted scooter may be subject to a traffic citation and fine (ORS 814.536), as well.
Riders must follow Oregon traffic laws and any laws that apply specifically to these vehicles, such as wearing a helmet.
A driver license or restricted license is required for anyone to operate a moped (ORS 807.031). Violation of this law is a Class B traffic violation with a maximum fine of $360.
To be legal on Oregon public roads, they must fit one
of the definitions in the state’s laws.
Riders must be at least 16 years old.
Use of these vehicles also may be restricted in cities, counties, parks, bike lanes, crosswalks, sidewalks and other locations and situations.
Mopeds must be titled and registered, but Oregon law specifically exempts motor-assisted scooters, electric assisted bicycles, and personal mobility devices from title and registration requirements.
A motor-assisted scooter:
- is designed to be operated on the ground with not more than three wheels;
- has handlebars and a foot support or seat;
- can be propelled by human or motor;
- has a motor capable of propelling it no faster than 24 miles per hour on a level road; and
- has a motor no bigger than 35 cubic centimeters or, if electric, has a power output of no more than 1,000 watts.
- is designed to be operated on the ground upon wheels;
- has a seat or saddle for use of the rider;
- is designed to travel with not more than three wheels in contact with the ground;
- is equipped with an independent power source that is capable of propelling the vehicle, unassisted, at a speed of not more than 30 miles per hour on a level road surface; and if the power source is a combustion engine, has a piston or rotor displacement of 35.01 to 50 cubic centimeters regardless of the number of chambers in the power source; and
- is equipped with a power drive system that functions directly or automatically only and does not require clutching or shifting by the operator after the system is engaged.
A bicycle equipped
with a power source may be classed as a moped if it
meets all the moped requirements and also does not
meet either the definition of an electric assisted
bicycle as defined in ORS 801.258 or a motor assisted
scooter as defined in ORS 801.348.
An electric assisted bicycle:
- is designed to be operated on the ground on wheels;
- has a seat or saddle for use of the rider;
- is designed to travel with not more than three wheels in contact with the ground;
- has both fully operative pedals for human propulsion and an electric motor; and
- is equipped with an electric motor that has a power output of not more than 1,000 watts and is incapable of propelling the vehicle at a speed of greater than 20 miles per hour on level ground.
An electric personal mobility device:
- is self-balancing on two tandem wheels;
- is designed to transport one standing person;
- has an electric motor; and
- has a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour.

Unless you need an immediate response to a police, fire or medical emergency, call the non-emergency number instead of 9-1-1. In the City of Cottage Grove, the non-emergency number for the Police Department is 541-942-9145. The non-emergency number for Lane County Sheriff's Office is 541-682-4141. The non-emergency number for South Lane Rural Fire and Rescue is 541-942-4493. Call 9-1-1 for all medical services. Using the non-emergency number keeps 9-1-1 available for emergencies.
Some examples of non-emergency police calls within the City Limits are:
- Your house or car was broken into yesterday. - 541-942-9145
- Your missing child has returned home. - 541-942-9145
- You need to add additional items to the burglary report which you made last week. - 541-942-9145
- Your car was stolen sometime overnight. 541-942-9145
- Someone stole your bicycle while you were at school. - 541-942-9145
- There is an abandoned vehicle on your street. - 541-942-9145
All callers are asked a standard set of questions which will help the dispatcher prioritize your call, and will provide the responding personnel with information before their arrival. The following are just some of the questions we may ask you.
Where are you and where did the incident happen?
This is important if the phone line disconnects for some reason. Even though the 9-1-1 information the dispatcher receives should have the phone number and address of where you are calling from, the dispatcher will ask you for the address where the problem is, as well as where you are calling from, to verify the information on the 9-1-1 screen. This is especially critical if you are calling from an address other than the one where the problem is. It is also important to give any building names, building numbers, apartment or condominium names and unit or suite numbers.
Be as specific as possible. Avoid using "left" and "right" as directions. This is often confusing. Instead, use a direction such as "North" or "South". The best locations are specific street addresses or cross streets.
Please use real language – don’t try to use lingo or slang, it will only confuse the situation. Just tell us briefly what is happening or what happened.
- Is anyone injured?
- Basic description of what occurred.
TIME ELEMENT: When did this occur? 5 minutes ago, 5 days ago, last year, has it been going on over a span of time (hours, days, or weeks).
- How many people are involved?
- Race, sex, height, weight, clothing, hair color, facial hair, eyeglasses, hat, etc.
- We like descriptions from the top to bottom, outside to inside…
- What is “Top to Bottom”? Hat, hair, facial hair? shirt, coat, pants, shoes – top of the person to the bottom.
- What is “Outside to Inside”? Coat is on the outside, shirt is on the inside, t-shirt inside that – outer clothing first then to the detailed less visible clothing.
- DID THE PERSON HAVE A WEAPON? If so, what kind?
- Was the person carrying anything?
- Where did the person go?
- Color, make, model, license #, state, and # of doors
- Direction of travel
When calling 9-1-1, all you have to do is answer the dispatcher’s questions! Stay on the phone and answer the questions as calmly as you can. Sometimes it may sound as if the dispatchers are repeating themselves with the same questions, but you may give more detail the second time. There may have been something you've forgotten earlier. Please don't become irritated with them, they are trying to obtain important information and to assist you. We know how stressful an emergency situation can be, try to remain calm when giving information.
Do not hang up until the 9-1-1 Dispatcher, or the on scene Police or Fire personnel, direct you to do so.
WHEN GIVING INFORMATION, DON'T EDIT OR EXAGGERATE! - Top
Give all the information that you have. For Example: If you don't mention that the suspect was wearing a red hat because you don't think it was important, you may be withholding the single most important identifier in apprehending the suspect.
Emergency response WILL NOT be delayed by answering the above questions. In most instances, assistance will be dispatched while you are still on the phone. By answering the dispatcher's questions, the dispatcher can relay important information to the units responding prior to their arrival. This increases the chances of a successful outcome to the call!
There will be a delay in receiving a dial tone. Don't flick the phone hook switch button (click button up and down), since each time it is depressed, your call reverts to the "end of the line" to receive the dial tone, resulting in further delay!
Wait at least one to one and a half minutes for a dial tone. It could take that long or even 5-6 minutes in a major disaster, because of the number of calls being made.
Please tune in the emergency broadcast station of your radio for information and updates rather than to call the police or fire departments. DO NOT CALL radio stations for updates; the less the phone lines are used, the more service there will be for emergency help.
In some instances, the dial tone will be eliminated from residential phones and phones that are not on "essential service". In these instances, ALL PAY PHONES will be operable, with a dial tone.
There is no way to tell, in advance, if the 9-1-1 screens in the dispatch center will be functioning correctly in a major emergency, so be prepared to give the dispatcher all information.
During a disaster, electricity usually fails. Do NOT call 9-1-1 to find out when the power will go back on.
DO NOT HANG UP!
Before you hang up, be sure to tell the dispatcher that you have dialed 9-1-1 by mistake, and that you do not need emergency help! This is particularly important if you dial from a business phone with several phone lines. Anytime the police dispatcher receives a 9-1-1 "hang-up"; the caller must be contacted to be sure that no actual emergency exists. If your business has dozens or even hundreds of phone lines, it may be impossible for the dispatcher to determine who, if anyone needs help, and an officer may be dispatched to the address.
You may dial 9-1-1 for an emergency at any pay phone, without
needing any coins. The phone number and location of the pay
phone should show up on the 9-1-1 screen.
While we encourage people to use the cellular phones to dial 911 in emergency situations, people also need to be aware that location information does not come up on the dispatcher's screen as it does on a call from a landline phone. Technology is advancing in this field, but currently the only information displayed on the 9-1-1 screen is the cellular company provider name (i.e. Verizon or Cingular, etc.) and the phone number of the cellular phone. If you dial 911 from your cellular phone, we will not know where you are at; you will have to give us location information to get units to respond.
In addition, reporting over a cellular phone presents another challenge – static and interference on the line. This can lead to missed information - please be patient and understanding if the dispatcher asks you the same question more than once.
When you dial 9-1-1 from you cellular phone, you will be routed automatically to the
9-1-1 center closest to the cellular site you are using. This is not something you or we can control. With cellular “skip”, we have seen calls from as far away as Eugene and Portland come into our Communications Center here in Cottage Grove. Be patient, you may have to be transferred to the correct Communications Center.
Do not call 9-1-1 if you only need information or directions. The business telephone numbers of local police and fire departments are listed on the front inside cover of telephone directories for easy reference – or they can be obtained by dialing 4-1-1.
The Cottage Grove Police Department strongly recommends that if you need to make a call from your cellular phone while you are driving, that you pull off the road to a safe location before making your call. Do not allow your phone to be a distraction to driving, driving safely is always priority #1!
Each 9-1-1 station in the Communications Center is equipped with a TTY machine. To access TTY or TDD, press the space bar until a response is received
Make sure your child knows the following information:
- Name (yours and the child’s).
- Address (including name of apartment complex and apartment number if applicable).
