When one talks to local representatives, regulators and law enforcement they say ebikes are not approved mobility devices. That may vary from state to state, county to county. A court will have to set a precedent. My county did have some heart over the issue though, their first move was to allow people with disabilities to obtain a permit to use an ebike, an ebike class they approved of. Even if you can obtain a permit to ride, they can set the limits and require a doctor to certify the disability and the permit applicant must sign a sworn statement they will abide by the approved limits. I know a couple that obtained said permits and got caught using a class 3 ebike, where it was illegal. They could have been prosecuted, but the permit was just revoked. These aren't simple, straightforward issues.
