Electric scooter riders will have the same rights and responsibilities as riders of electrical assisted bicycles, under the laws of Colorado. Local governments may regulate the operation of electric scooters in a manner similar to local government regulations for electrical assisted bicycles, but no more restrictive than regulations for electrical assisted bicycles.
