Note explicative (en anglais seulement)

This Bill amends the Motor Vehicle Act to permit two-wheeled self-balancing battery-powered electric vehicles to be used
(a) on roadways, by including the vehicles in the definition of “bicycle” in the Act; and
(b) on sidewalks and in safety zones and crosswalks, by deeming their drivers to be pedestrians when on or in these places and by overriding provisions that would require them to drive on roadways or in bicycle lanes only.

The Bill also clarifies that provisions that prohibit passengers on bicycles, require bicycle helmets and prohibit trick riding continue to apply to these drivers while they are deemed to be pedestrians, and provisions that require they follow the flow of traffic and ride single file do not.
