2. California sets emission regulations. California is the only state to date who has set emission regulations on lawnmowers. Owners are required by law to only own mowers with the specific emission standards that are set by the California Air Resources Board.
3. They are age restricted. There are certain states who require that people of a certain age not be allowed to drive lawnmowers. This is usually just mandated as a proper safety measure, but some states take it a step further and demand that those younger than sixteen not be allowed to operate the mower.
4. The sidewalk is also off-limits. You might think of a sidewalk as a gift to the public, but you will be sorely disappointed to learn that this is not the case.
5. You can't use them to ride around if your license is suspended. This weird rule is similar to the DUI rule, but many people attempt to use lawnmowers as an alternative vehicle after they have their license suspended.
6. They are not considered motor vehicles in certain states. There are certain states who do not consider them motor vehicles at all. This means they cannot be taken off of your private property no matter the circumstance, and even driving it down your block is considered illegal.
7. They are not allowed on highways. This is pretty standard, but lawnmowers are not permitted on highways. They are unable to reach the speeds set by the roadway, and even if they are able to it is just not safe.
8. They must display a sign if they are slow moving in certain states. This law is different depending on the state, but many have switched to mandate this for any lawnmowers that have decided to hit the road.
9. They are only meant to carry one person. It goes without saying that lawnmowers only have one seat and are only meant to carry one person, but what you might not realize is that it is actually against the law.
10. You can be charged with a DUI. Lawnmowers may not be allowed on the road, but that doesn't mean you still can't be charged with a DUI. Officers have the ability to pull you and your lawnmower over and ticket you if they feel that your operation of the motorized vehicle is inhibited by alcohol.
11. They are not city street legal. It is a common misconception that lawnmowers are street legal, but this is not always the case. It is common in rural areas for them to be allowed on the roadways, but when it comes to city streets that is an entirely new ball game.
