Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 204-10-060 Equipment standardsReflectors.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 46.37.005, 46.37.320, and 46.20.500.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Currently, the WAC states on motorized foot scooters, the reflectors must be securely mounted and of a type conforming to 16 C.F.R. Part 1512. The types of reflectors mentioned in 16 C.F.R. Part 1512 are for bicycles only, the size and locations for these reflectors would not fit on a motorized foot scooter.
The proposed rule changes would remove the reference of the C.F.R. on motorized foot scooters and add a new section that addresses the reflector requirements on a motorized foot scooter.
Process for Developing New Rule: The Washington state patrol (WSP) welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, the WSP will file a Proposed rule making (CR-102) with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Kimberly Mathis, Agency Rules Coordinator, 106 11th Avenue S.W., Olympia, WA, phone 360-596-4017, email, website
