My question is: Does anyone here know the laws about driving vehicles that have a top speed of 30 mph on interstate freeways or on their shoulders? I often see cyclists traveling the shoulders of interstate freeways. I wonder if it is possible with a light electric vehicle too. Anyone here know?
Does a Segway count as a light electric vehicle ?

I think so:10 MPH }{ Segway roadtrip across America }{ A Documentary Film

It's been done on a lawn tractor too: Across America in 80 days ... on a lawnmower -

Studying those stories might shed light on route options/problems/solutions.
