In Nebraska, hoverboards can be considered EPAMDs.

An EPAMD refers to a self-balancing, two-non tandem wheeled device with an electric propulsion system of less than 750 watts. It is designed for one person and has a maximum speed of less than 20 mph on a paved level surface.

LB 976 was introduced to accommodate the introduction of the Segway, which can reach speeds of up to 20 mph and is balanced by an internal gyroscope. This law allows EPAMDs (and hoverboards) to be operated on the streets, sidewalks, and bikeways of Nebraska.

Municipalities have the power to regulate the use of EPAMDs. Users must abide by speed limits and yield the right of way. A driver’s license or DMV registration is not required. EPAMDs can be used at night with headlights and operator reflectors.
