Page 76 of the Oregon Driver Manual sez...

"Operators of motorized wheelchairs, scooters, and personal assistive mobility devices are permitted to use bicycle lanes and paths. These vehicles can not exceed a speed limit of 15 mph. You must yield to these operators before you turn across the bicycle lane or path."

So, yeah, sadly, that's where ODOT wants folks in motorized wheelchairs. My guess is to keep them off the sidewalks.

No kiddin'! Well, I kind of feel like a numbskull now, but I don't see how anyone is safer with motorized wheelchairs on the road, right next to traffic, rather than on the sidewalks.

Thanks for looking that up!

I don't get the logic either, but hey, that's what the law says.

I remembered that from studying for the license test here in OR. Struck me as very strange at the time.
