In New Mexico, electric personal assistive mobility devices (EPAMDs), including hoverboards, must be equipped with front, rear, and side reflectors, a braking system, and a white light for nighttime operation.

When operating on sidewalks, roadways, or bicycle paths, the operator of an EPAMD has the same rights and duties as a pedestrian and must yield to pedestrians. Except for local specific provisions, no other laws in the Motor Vehicle Code apply to EPAMDs.

Violations of this section result in a warning for the first offense, a $10 fine for the second offense, and impounding of the EPAMD for up to 30 days for a third or subsequent offense. These laws do not apply to EPAMDs used by individuals with disabilities.
