I got pulled over tonight for not having plates on my Skeuter. The reason I didn't have plates is that my current scoot is a loaner from the owner of Skeuter - a 600w model to ride while I wait for a 1500w to arrive. They asked to see my license, and I gave it to them, explaining that it was an electric bike. I do have a learner's permit, but that doesn't allow me to ride after dark, and this was around 9:30pm. Anyways, they got confused when I told them it was electric, and said that it's either an off-road vehicle or a "vehicle' vehicle (very helpful, right?), in which case I need a license. I didn't want to argue too much, so i left it at that. They remarked that it "looked like it was trying to be street legal", and since I didn't have the proper license, they had to impound it. I gave them the key and called my girlfriend to pick me up.
I go to the station tomorrow, I'll give you another update after what I'm sure will be a fun ordeal.
