SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah House has passed a bill that would ban mini-motorcycles from public property.
The bill on a 52-to-18 vote and now goes to the Senate. It also requires parents to supervise youngsters under 16 riding on private property.
Mini-motorcycles, which sell for $350 to $3,000, have as little as an inch of ground clearance and a saddle usually no higher two feet off the ground. Safety officials say their low profile makes it difficult for motorists to see them.
South Jordan, Layton, Centerville, Kaysville and Salt Lake County have bans in place.
