Saw this on the news this morning.
The Hate Factor for these scooters is growing daily. People toss'em anywhere, ride down sidewalks (a no-no) and fail to observe any traffic rules.
But THIS, this is a first! Clearly 'Bro' here is going for a Darwin Award....
Just yesterday morning I am rolling on the big V-Twin down the HOV lane, and the traffic for main lanes (5) is all to my left.
That traffic is coming to a stop, so *I* slow down in the HOV lane because that is when they come through the plastic pipe 'barricade' into the HOV....
All of a sudden, some Redneck comes RUNNING ON FOOT through the traffic, right into my lane, to get a "donut tire" that is in the HOV lane!
I braked hard, and rode past him with my jaw on my chest. Really, is a crap tire worth dying for on the Interstate? (watch the video and you can see the traffic level I am talking about) Phone Footage of man on Dallas Interstate with an ellectric scooter
