        Rio, what is wrong with the word persecuted? It is a word in the Webster English Dictionary

          Grammar student, as an English teacher, I will explain to you that the word is used out of context. The word is an English word, but the word for the context should be prosecuted- not persecuted.

            "prosecuted" if the police and courts were doing their job, but also probably feels "persecuted" by the anti-scooter majority (AKA grownups)

    Young men and women we know riding is exciting and you love that special feeling of getting where you want to go quickly but dose it profit you to keep doing it at the risk of serious injuries or lost of life when you also have the choice to slow down and obey the traffic rules and still enjoy biking

    This is what happened when people in power make bad decisions. They fire the only real cop on the streets.. When a moped man leave his house he make sure he has his helmet, when drivers coming to town they make sure they are buckled up their hand devices are in order their Vehicles are license and insured why Robo Cop is on their minds. That an impact of a real street Cop.
