He “transformed” the electric bike into a motorcycle to be able to drive without a license. The man, 32, was discovered by the local police of La Spezia and reported. The agents noticed him while he sped, without pedaling, between piazzale Kennedy and via Veneto. So they decided to stop him and check the two-wheelers discovering that he was a real unregistered electric moped. On the handlebar there was a button that, when pressed, made it possible to reach a speed of 20 km / h, while in electric pedal assisted cycles when you reach 6 km / h it is necessary to integrate the kinetic thrust by pedaling.
At that point, the agents had no choice but to pay a maxi penalty for circulation with an unregistered moped (fine of up to 316 euros) and without a circulation certificate (fine of up to 635 euros). The man was also sanctioned for lack of insurance (another penalty from 866 up to € 3,464) and for driving without an Am category license (penalty from € 5,100 from a minimum to a maximum of 30,599). The rigged bike was impounded.
