Rep. David Hiott’s bill that would outlaw mopeds on our streets is nothing but selfish and inconsiderate.
For many, mopeds are the only affordable transportation to work. Prohibiting them when there is no viable mass transit would deny those people the ability to earn a living.
As for those moped riders who received a DUI while driving a car, it is better when they are working and contributing to society than not.
The only danger mopeds offer is to those who ride them. This bill is merely a response to the inconvenience of those who must reduce their speed whenever they encounter one. To veil this attempt as a safety issue fools no one.
