We petition the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba to ammend the Highway Traffic Act as follows:
1. Amend the definition of moped under the Highway Traffic Act to:
  • Set the top speed to 70km/hr, harmonizing it with Transport Canada ’s Definition;
  • Add “automatic transmission” to the defining characteristics;
  • Add a maximum dry weight of 95 kilograms to the definition.
2. Remove Section 184 which permits the carrying of infants on a moped.
3. Remove Section 111 which requires mopeds to ride against the curb or on the shoulder of a roadway under certain conditions.
4. Amend Section 184(6) to allow carrying of passengers on mopeds provided that (1) the moped is equipped by the original manufacturer to carry a passenger and (2) the driver of the moped has a valid and unrestricted Class 6 Motorcycle License.
5. Apply any and all restrictions which are part of the Graduated Class 5 licensing system to moped-class vehicles.
6. Require that Vehicle Safety Certifications be required for registration of mopeds upon sale/transfer of ownership similar to the process required for motorcycles and other vehicle classes.
