Hello,

First time poster.

My Sonders Ebike should be arriving in a week or so and I will be using it to cruise around my small town instead of using my 14 MPG Jeep Wranger (which I love but it would be nice to just leave it in the driveway and take the bike). I will also be using this ebike down the shore (ocean city and sea isle).

I was wondering if anyone had any idea what the laws are for e-bikes in Jersey? I googled and found nothing except some lady who was ticketed in 2011 for a moped-ebike -

I believe the laws are that as long as your wearing your wife beater T-shirt, gold chain, and Yankees hat (on sideways of course) the cops have to leave you alone, lol. Just having some NJ ( what exit?) fun, lol.

Funny, but I live in South Jersey (big difference). I am right across the bridge from Philadelphia, thus a Phillies fan (and eagles season ticket holder).

In that case you're fine whatever you do. As everyone knows, Philly fans are much more reserved, refined, and respectful than NY fans, LOL. Just ride and have fun and don't try to get noticed. I don't believe anyone is going to hassle you as long as you are obeying the basic bike rules of whatever region you are in at the time. If they do, make a video and post it on Youtube, and it will go viral. As we all know, since all of this countries crime problems are finally solved, the police can know start concentrating on the real issues, like outlaw ebikers, lol.

Did you run across this little power point? Slide 4 touches on E-bikes and NJ law.
