Highway 130… What’s Wrong With This Picture

So what’s wrong with this picture?


Well if you look on the left, you will see a guy cruising down the side of the road of the incoming traffic on a scooter going 35 MPH down Highway 130.

Both bicycles and scooters have to ride this way in the morning currently because with the open shoulder traffic on the town bound land from 6 am – 8 am, they would get crushed and only piss off drivers that got stuck behind them.

There are a couple of bridges that these guys must wait for oncoming traffic just to get across the bridge w/out worrying about a car smashing them.

Here is a closer look at what is happening to these poor fellows:


The guy on the scooter better hope that none of the cars  goes over the line, as we all  have at some time when weren’t paying the upmost attention.

  1. Your last sentence is what worries me most. The standard of driving here is terrible and your own comment confirms my opinion. Can’t you just pay a little more attention when you’re driving a car?

    I was taught that I was using a deadly weapon when I learned to drive, it’d be good if people here would understand that. Driving into the shoulder because you’re not paying attention? No, I haven’t done that.

    As for the scooter driver, he or she is an idiot, but it doesn’t surprise me.

  2. If you look at the top picture… Typically at this time of the day you will see cars on the far right lane (Next to the Red Truck over the solid line) traveling 55 – 65 mph and using that as the “Fast Lane” to get into town.

    If the scooter was in that right lane… he would hold up all the traffic.

  3. The problem is that he is going against traffic, just asking to get hit by somebody pulling out from a side street or driveway. Drivers look to the oncoming traffic, not the other way when pulling out. He should be on the other side of the road.
