at anytime the vehicle is being operated.
    (e) Motorcycle/moped operators will not attach their vehicle or
themselves to any other motorized vehicle operating upon the roadway.
    (f) Footrests will be provided for passengers. Motorcycles/mopeds
will not be operated with handlebars more than 15 inches above the seat
which the operator occupies. No back rest attached to the motorcycle/
moped will have a sharp point at its apex.
