In Hawaii, electric personal assistive mobility devices (EPAMDs), including hoverboards, are allowed to be operated on sidewalks and bicycle paths at a maximum speed of eight miles per hour, unless prohibited or regulated by a county ordinance.

The sale of consumer models of EPAMDs in the state is limited to those that have a key feature to set the maximum forward speed at no more than eight miles per hour.

Operators of EPAMDs must be sixteen years of age or older. They must exercise caution to avoid colliding with pedestrians and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and those using mobility aids. EPAMD operators must also give an audible signal before overtaking and passing any pedestrians.

Additionally, they must equip their EPAMDs with reflectors and a headlamp when operating between one-half hour after sunset and one-half hour before sunrise. Reckless operation of an EPAMD can result in penalties as set forth in section 291C-161.
