Ohioans could park certain motor scooters and motorized cycles on sidewalks under a proposal approved by state lawmakers.
State Sen. Bill Seitz of Cincinnati sponsored the measure after hearing about the parking struggles of his law partner. He has said the change could encourage people to commute in more energy-efficient ways.
The measure also would let people drive historical vehicles on roadways when traveling to and from locations for maintenance.
The Senate passed an earlier version of the bill and would have to sign off on House changes.
