In Michigan, there are several laws regarding the operation of electric personal assistive mobility devices (EPAMDs), which hoverboards are classified as, as well as other similar devices such as low-speed vehicles, electric skateboards, and mopeds:

1. EPAMDs, low-speed vehicles, electric skateboards, and mopeds must ride as close to the right side of the roadway as possible. They should also exercise caution when passing standing vehicles or vehicles moving in the same direction and should not interfere with the movement of a streetcar on a streetcar track.

2. Motorcycles have the right to use a full lane, and motor vehicles should not drive in a way that obstructs a motorcycle’s use of the lane. However, this law does not apply to motorcycles riding side by side in a single lane or if a motorcycle obstructs a streetcar’s movement.

3. EPAMDs, motorcycles, electric skateboards, and mopeds must not ride more than two abreast on a roadway, except on designated paths or roadways exclusively for these vehicles.

4. If a usable and designated path for bicycles is available next to a highway or street, local ordinances may require EPAMDs or electric skateboards to use that path.

5. EPAMDs, motorcycles, low-speed vehicles, electric skateboards, and mopeds should not pass between lines of traffic. They may, however, pass on the left of traffic moving in their direction on a two-way street or on the left or right of traffic on a one-way street in an unoccupied lane.

6. When operating an EPAMD or electric skateboard on a sidewalk meant for pedestrians, the rider must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians. They should also give an audible signal before overtaking and passing a pedestrian.

7. Mopeds, low-speed vehicles, and commercial quadricycles are prohibited from being operated on sidewalks designated for pedestrians.

8. Low-speed vehicles must not exceed a speed of 25 miles per hour. They are also not allowed on highways or streets with speed limits over 35 miles per hour, except when crossing. Commercial quadricycles should not exceed a speed of 45 miles per hour and are similarly restricted from certain highways or streets. Individuals must have a valid operator’s license to operate a commercial quadricycle with a motor. The state transportation department has the authority to prohibit the operation of low-speed vehicles or commercial quadricycles on any highway or street if it is deemed necessary for public safety
