Electric Bicycle - Laws, Insurances, Accidents and Initiatives


Laws

Before purchasing a new pair of electric bicycle, you should check what are the electric bicycle laws in your place of residence.



Insurance

You are probably using different kinds of protections to ensure your electric bicycle won't get stolen. Even though, there is always a chance that they will be.

If you want to be more relaxed about your e-bike when you leave them on the street, you can insure them.

Enter this page to read about different electric bicycles insurance policies.


Accidents

Electric bicycles have higher average speed then conventional bicycles. As with anything, there is a good side and a bed side for this higher speed.

Faster means that you can keep up with the traffic. When getting out of the light, you can accelerate at a rate which is pretty much equal to the acceleration rate of a car inside an urban zone and minimize the probability for an accident. This is the good side.

The bad side is that the e-bikes are prone to be involved in more accidents involving pedestrians. And as you go faster, this accidents could be more severe.

Cycle schemes

Inside the comparison guide page, there is a whole section devoted to price comparisons between e-bikes and other means of transportation. A quick conclusion is that the overall price that you pay for using your e-bike is a joke when comparing it to the cost involved of running a car. But of course, any further discount is always welcome.

Many countries around the world have schemes and incentives programs for promoting the use of electric vehicle in general and light electric vehicle (such as an electric bicycle) in particular.
