      a. For purposes of this section, the term  "motorized  scooter"  shall  mean  any  wheeled  device  that has handlebars  that is designed to be stood or sat upon by the operator, is powered by an electric motor or by a gasoline motor that is capable of propelling the device  without human power and is not capable of being registered with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. For the purposes of this section, the term motorized scooter shall  not  include wheelchairs or other mobility aids designed for use by disabled persons[, electric powered devices not capable of exceeding fifteen miles per hour or "electric personal assistive   mobility devices" defined as self-balancing, two non-tandem wheeled devices designed to transport one person by means of an electric propulsion system].
      d.  Any  motorized  scooter  that  has  been  used or is being used in violation of the provisions of this section may be impounded and  shall not  be  released until any and all removal charges and storage fees and the applicable fines and civil penalties have been paid or a bond has  been  posted  in  an amount satisfactory to the [police] commissioner of the agency that impounded such vehicle.
      ยง 2.  This local law shall take effect one hundred eighty days after it shall have become law, except that the commissioners of the police department and the department of parks and recreation shall take all actions necessary, including the promulgation of rules, to implement this local law on or before the date upon which it shall take effect.
