  1. Planning on making an electric ‘go-kart,’ though there will be a bigger frame, meant as a recreational toy, and a learning-of-mechanics experience of itself. This ‘go-kart,’ will be composed of wood, trying to ensure the precautions for safety, but I was wondering if an electric ‘go-kart’ is legal to drive once and a while in our neighborhood, like a bike is able to drive on the side of the road.

    1. Hey there,

      That sounds like a nice project! It’s a tricky question because it can quality has recreational vehicle or a “toy”. It’s best to check this directly with your neighborhood/city rep.
      I know some people who got clearance to ride their “toy” go-karts on the sidewalk but not on the road, unless it’s was a private neighborhood.
