Back off on the scooters,, All ppl need one. Cars should be illegal

Oh man, don’t get me started on scooters. I cant believe we haven’t had more scooter riders run down out of spite. Whenever traffic starts backing up, I automatically start looking for the scooter causing it. They shouldn’t be allowed on streets with more than a 35 mph speed limit. And if its motorized and on ANY city street or county road it should be licensed.

They would then have to cross at an intersection if no marked crosswalks were available, and they would still have to obey the traffic lights.

If there wasn’t a cross-walk within 5 miles of there, you’re basically saying that it’s illegal for pedestrians to cross the street! What’s next, illegal to be poor in North Carolina?
