Police in Berea and Frankfort have both said that if they suspect that an underage driver is riding a moped on a public roadway, they will be pulled over.
Officers remind everyone that in order to ride a moped, you must have a valid driver’s license.
It is also against the law for children to ride mopeds on roadways; they are allowed to ride only in their backyards.
And regardless of the driver’s age, officers want the community to remember that mopeds are not allowed on any interstates.
Riding a moped on an interstate could result in $200 in court costs on top of being ticketed.
In addition, police said all mopeds must be properly equipped, including rear-view mirrors and footrests, before they can be operated.
