Post-Tribune - - Region / Business -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS — A new state law re­quires own­ers of low-speed mopeds and scoot­ers to reg­is­ter their ve­hi­cles with the In­di­ana Bureau of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles.

Be­gin­ning Thurs­day, own­ers of mopeds or scoot­ers with en­gines smaller than 50 cu­bic cen­time­ters must have a reg­is­tra­tion, a li­cense plate and an In­di­ana iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card, and they must pass a test iden­ti­fy­ing street signs.

The li­cense plates will be col­ored dif­fer­ently than plates for high­er­pow­ered mopeds and will cost $26.35 a year. The ID card costs $11.50.

In­di­ana State Po­lice will give own­ers of the ve­hi­cles a one- month grace pe­riod be­fore they start i ssui ng tick­ets for un­reg­is­tered bikes. The BMV says l ocal l aw en­force­ment agen­cies also may pro­vide grace pe­ri­ods.
