    This guy died. He was the son of a friend of mine. I’m not terribly fond of scooters myself. They scare me. I do know that everyone I know that has one has no driver’s license because of alcohol issues. That bothers me a lot, as I’m sure it does most everyone. I just wish our roads were safer for everyone…pedestrians, scooter riders, car/truck drivers…all of us!
