😲🛴Scooter on the Interstate!

https://youtu.be/ffR7qcsNTic

(warning: one expletive :43 mark....just turn down the sound)

 

Everyone is saying,

“HOW in the devil did he get in the LEFT lane of a

6-lane highway...at RUSH hour?’

 

Ludicrous? Of course!

Condone? Heavens no!

 

I-35 (‘Stemmons’ for us Dallasites) is a 6-lane highway used by

many, many semis & large commercial vehicles...going at 75mph!

This is one of those crazy things where I want to look away but

oddly fascinated what his frame of mind would be!!

He was looking over his shoulder when making lane changes,

so we have to give him a little cred for that!  Funny stuff😆

I’m sure 911 was flooded with calls but it appears

he was exiting so quickly, I would guess he’s unknown.  

It did get the attention of the Texas Governor, via Twitter,

implying the legal aspect so...we’ll see if this story continues.

Was he on the interstate to make a point of some kind or what?...or maybe just nuts!

I was thinking they meant a scooter for someone that couldn’t walk. 

‘I still have “care giver brain”.☺️

Now I am sure some ridiculous copycat will try and do it also. The guy was lucky he wasn’t killed or cause an accident and kill others.

I am not a fan of those scooters.when I go downtown I see them abandoned all over the sidewalks...you really have to watch your step if it’s dark.

Re: 😲🛴Scooter on the Interstate!

If he had been hit, I wonder who would be blamed/held liable. One of my sons asked and the more we all discussed it, the more we're not sure. Common sense and the law are not often the same.

@SahmIam 

That’s a good question.

I would think, at first glance, it would kinda/sorta be like the person

who runs across a 6-lane interstate & gets hit. And those reports

always say it’s a ‘no-fault’ situation. This scooter story fascinates me!
