[Bicycles] Bike lanes and cycling infrastructure in Victoria and the south Island

...If it had a valid BC plate on it though that was not an ebike or assisted electric scooter. So it is not allowed in the bike lanes...
Well it was a licensed scooter that I saw in the Pandora bike lane around 11:15 this morning.

I see a guy riding one of those electric scooters on the E and N rail trail all the time, definitely not allowed.

^ licensed ones (eg. not speed limited to 32, but rather to 70) are not allowed on it. So it depends on what category this scooter LJ sees is.

Bike lanes can be used by electric bikes provided they still meet the definition of electric bikes, which means pedals cannot be disabled and the motor governor is still in place. Most scooter-like ebikes I have seen don't meet this definitions.
