Re: NOPED - Moped laws

Last year the dumbass mayor of Boston tried to pass a law requiring all vehicles without pedals to be plated and driven by people over 16 with valid driver's licenses... it was mainly a reaction to complaints by motorists against those little knee-high scooter thingys and motorized skateboards.. and also a diversion in the press to take attention away from the mayor's ineptitude in more important matters (the poice were picketing the Democratic National Convention because he couldn't reach agreement with the Police union on a fair contract and all the keynote speakers like Kennedy and Kerry refused to cross the picket lines to give their addresses) but the stupid politicians were going to group any 50cc or under vehicle into the same class... gang up on the mopeders.. easy target...they don't vote... (everything from Vino's, Vespas down to motorized skateboards!) with the exception of any mopeds with pedals ... at the moment none of these vehicles require a plate... but in recent years the greedy politicians figured out that they could charge everyone 40 bucks for a cheesy sticker which they now do.. and now its another 40 bucks to get a learner's permit (which is now required) Fortunately the peeps who sell those stupid little bikes have a strong lobby and it was labeled anti-business in the end so the issue faded away... for now...

I thank my lucky stars that both my peds are PUCHs with pedals so I cruised through the conroversy unscathed.. but it was scary!
