In Rhode Island, hoverboards are likely subject to EPAMD regulations. Anyone riding an electric personal assistive mobility device (EPAMD), electric motorized bicycle, or propelling a vehicle by human power is subject to all traffic laws applicable to the driver of any other vehicle.

However, there are certain special regulations and provisions that may not apply to these devices. EPAMDs are allowed to travel on the shoulders of the highway, except for those highways that prohibit bicyclists. EPAMDs have the rights and obligations of a pedestrian but not those of a motor vehicle operator.

Cities and towns have the authority to regulate the operation of EPAMDs. Violations of these laws may result in fines.
