      I hope not but, I feel the same way that you do. Do you know how many times I have to slam on my brakes to avoid one of the scooters or bikes from crashing into my vehicle? I LIVE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE I HAVE TO TURN OFF THE MAIN ROAD TO GET TO MY HOUSE, I ALWAYS HIT MY TURN SIGNAL AND THE ****ING IDIOTS WOULD BARREL IN FRONT OF MY VEHICLE OR SWERVE AROUND THE BACK OF THE VEHICLE TO CONTINUE GOING STRAIGHT.

      The scooter riders are reckless and don't give a $h!+...we see them every single day riding around with no helmet and no regard for others. What is more troubling, I the fact that the government and police continue to turn a blind eye.

    I hope the rider is ok. They be pissing me off the way some of them be riding out here on the roads putting themselves and the public in danger. And the damn noise at nights disturbing people out of their sleep. I can’t tell my boss I have to take the day off because of lack of sleep, he don’t want to hear or careless about that.

      I be cursing at them under my breath and giving them the bird but I will continue to hit the brakes because I don’t want that on my conscience and I can’t afford to mess up my vehicle.

    I hope that the bike rider is going to be alright. I really do. There are some responsible riders but the majority of the young people need to be educated on road safety. I strongly suggest that this should be done before granting them permission to ride on the street.

    Are any of these riders paying into the NHI system into which most of us working adults contribute to? Or, in addition to being not licensed nor insured nor contributing to society in any meaningful and your 'tax' dollars are spent in the hundreds of thousands to take care of their rass.
    Enough's is enough!

      Why are they all so completely rubbish at riding? Young and reckless is a thing all over the world but these kids are always falling off and hitting things. Is there something wrong with them?

    I notice a few of them recently on the highway doing one wheelers or whatever you call it. Riding with the bike in the air on one wheel. No helmet eh.
    I get so scared driving by them because the first thing I think is if they fall off is under my vehicle they going...the everyone will say I hit them...when they lying bleeding on the ground.
    Please careful
