HB 1009 would allow personal delivery devices to operate on any sidewalk or crosswalk in the state. The bill defines personal delivery device as a powered device intended to be operated primarily on sidewalks, crosswalks, and other pedestrian areas to transport cargo and capable of navigating with or without control of a natural person. Such devices would not be considered motor vehicles and would be exempt from all vehicle or motor vehicle registration requirements. Further, the bill prohibits local authorities from enacting or enforcing ordinances related to personal delivery devices concerning design standards, licensing and registration, taxation, insurance, or use upon sidewalks and crosswalks.
