First let me say I feel bad about Matt Tozer's death. Accidents and collisions happen and there really isn't much you can do about it. I received my "support shirt" in the mail and it is a nice shirt. Everyone should order one because it is a great design, nicely made, and it is for a good cause.
Aside from this what I really want to talk about is how idiotic it is to ride a moped, or ANY other mechanical device without medical and life insurance. You get on a bicycle, skateboard, unicycle, moped, or anything else and hurt yourself it is your fcking fault for not having the means to patch yourself up. period. It is one thing if you use your moped to ride back and forth from a sh!tty job in a sh!tty town that pays nothing. It is another thing if you are out just having a blast, drinking and acting like a bag of douche on your moped and get hurt. I have no sympathy for these people. It is called not having any common sense. "I never thought it would happen to me." Yea you never thought, because you dont fcking think.
Again, IF YOU RIDE A MOPED YOU NEED TO HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE.
Also, here is a scenario. Assume you are in a state where you don't need tags or insurance for mopeds. You are driving your car and a hot shot mopeder rides out in front of you and you hit them. It is totally NOT your fault and the police agree it is the hot shots fault. However, since they do not have auto insurance, guess who pays for them to get fixed up? You do. Or rather your insurance does. It is that spot on your insurance that says "Uninsured or under-insured motorist" That's right. Although it is not your fault, in a lot of states your insurance goes up because of this non-insured mopeder who cut you off because they wanted to show their friends how cool they are.
So that is it. Flame me if you like. In fact, please do. If you keep flaming and flaming maybe someone will get the point. If this post keeps one persons family from having to pay $90,000 in hospital bills because little George doesn't have brains enough to have insurance, then I have done my part. I will go ahead and say youre welcome, with the assumption that it will be due without anyone even knowing it.
That's all I have to say.
