Chalo said:Why would you think it would be a good idea for any 28 mph or 30 mph vehicle to be in a bike lane?
I wouldn't likely want to be in a "protected" lane going 30mph - and in fact I don't ride 30 mph, anyway. But I guess I have a "30 mph vehicle", given that that I've seen it run up over 1400W and I think the flat ground load for 30mph is only about 1000W.
It's kind of complicated. We can see as plain as day that we can't expect every ebike rider to be considerate and responsible, but it's kind of the nature of bicycling that we have to adapt to conditions, and crippling the bike to constrain the fools will lose you some of the flexibility to adapt like that.
