Gas Moped Flames

Electric bicycles are given extra privlage as "motorized bicycles" than gas powere "motorized bicycles". Electric "mopeds" or electric bicycles as defined in subdivision (b) of section 406 of the California Vehicle code are not required can be operated without a drivers license, liability insurance or a license plate, as prescribed in section 24016 of the California Vehicle Code.

The video below, of a gas powered "motorized bicycle" (aka a "Moped") illustrates how dangerous a gas powered moped can be a why it makes sense to require more limitations on them than electric mopeds, which do not use flamable liquids, and are virtually as safe as any electric wheelchair.
