Actually bicycles are subject to lots of regulations that escorted do not comply with eg must have pedals which work, cannot be sold with a throttle attached, lights, reflectors, brakes which cut off motor etc.

It is an interesting point, but provide they have 250w or less and limited top speed of 14mph then they would be just like electric bikes, which again don't need insurance or licenses.  However at least are on the road/cycle path and not going to run you down.

Yes, it is best if cyclists get insurance, but very few do as it goes against the view that cycling is a a cheap clean alternative.
