They are illegal because Delaware is has some dumb laws about them. I bought one for my son and actually called the DMV and the state police to talk abou it. Basically, they are not street legal, so you can not use them on roads. Further, in Delaware, the only place you can use a non-street legal gas/eletric vehicle is on your own property. So tchnically, these are legal to ride in your driveway/property in Delaware, but no where else.
To be fair, the cops also told me that my son riding his powerwheels through my development was also technically illegal, as you can not operate a non-street legal on any public street.
