Wow, you guys scare me with these stories....I was hoping that the slower speeds of a moped might make them alittle more safer then a motorcycle...
I think I need a diagram to understand Reep's accident.... were you and the van both in the left turn lane trying to make a left ? Not sure how the van blocked the car's view..
Sometimes I have to hang in an intersection waiting for a left turn and I feel pretty helpless, since cars are all trying to gun it and run the redlights...a moped from a stopped position doesn't have the accelleration to get out of the way.
I went on a green light at an intersection a few weeks ago and a car ran the redlight,he squeeled the brakes...thought I was gonna get T-boned, but luckily there was a small Honda to my left, so he would have gotten rammed first...he just missed that Honda by inches...uugh
