At the age of 14 through 16, many children should be allowed to commute to school via a PMD, and we shouldn't limit them to 10km an hour.

PMDs should be able to access footpaths, separated paths, bicycle paths and local roads.
Highways should not be allowed. We should absolutely allow local road usage, otherwise we severely limit commuting aspects.
