Motoscooters for Morons

Posted on Thu, Jun 2, 2011 at 10:25 AM

Ok, enough bitching about bikes. Y'know what grinds my gears? Asshats on those electric scooter/Vespa-wannabees. They aren't licensed but people drive them in traffic like legit motorized vehicles... when it's convenient. At least with licensed motorized fare you have to pass a test.

I just watched some moron pull all the way through an intersection to the point where they were almost to the oncoming traffics side of the intersection (they were in a left turning lane) to the point where vehicles coming towards them couldn't proceed to the centre of the intersection to make a left turn. When it was safe to turn left they scooted onto the sidewalk via the crosswalk and motored down the sidewalk. The province/city is going to have to deal with these fuckers eventually... —Cranky
