Not don’t get me wrong. I love me a scooter. Jumping scooter, scooter burn outs, racing scooter. I’m all for it. However scooters that go too slow and or drive where I need to drive/go, I don’t like.
In example, this. In the south of China there are a ton of cars so in the major cities you can’t drive scooters. Finally outlawed them and actually enforced it. But here in the middle or there abouts of China, you can. This is both a major problem and a safety issue. As you can see from the above photo the scooters are driving on the side of the road among cars, well, there are cars, but just not in the photo.
What really chaps my ass is this, there is a SCOOTER ROAD just to the right. That’s not a damn sidewalk. It’s for scooters. So how about this, get you slow ass scooter up on that road damn out of my way, either that or transplant you little 40cc scooter engine with a 600 gixxer and start pulling 70mph cat walks. Either way is fine by me.
What this photos can’t show you is this, scooters run red lights, swerve all over, weave in and out of traffic, cut people off, go down the wrong side of the road, go slow, and generally don’t follow any and I mean any traffic laws at all. NONE. Whenever you drive you got to make damn sure that there are no scooters around and in your blind spots. Either that or carry around a bunch of money to pay off all the people you hit on scooters.
