In Oregon, electric personal assistive mobility devices (EPAMDs) like hoverboards are not considered motor vehicles under the Oregon Vehicle Code, unless otherwise specified by statute.

When operating an EPAMD on a bicycle lane, path, or highway, individuals have the same rights and responsibilities as bicycle riders, unless otherwise specified.

When operating on a sidewalk, individuals have the same rights and responsibilities as pedestrians. EPAMDs are considered vehicles under the vehicle code, except for provisions that do not apply to these devices.

The provisions of the vehicle code do not exempt operators from exercising due care. Unsafe operation of an EPAMD is considered a Class D traffic violation and can include exceeding speed limits, operating carelessly, carrying another person, failing to yield to pedestrians, and not giving an audible warning when overtaking pedestrians on the sidewalk.
