SOUTH CAROLINA (WJBF) – New rules will go into effect for moped drivers in South Carolina July 1.

The law requires mopeds be licensed and registered and follow many of the same laws as all other vehicles.

It also allows intoxicated moped drivers to be prosecuted for driving under the influence.

Moped drivers can also only drive on roads with a speed limit of 55 miles per hour and under.
