I’ve lived in the Dallas, Texas metropolitan area all of my life and have seen more than a few oddities. But, on the morning of July 22, a driver captures this fool locomoting down I-35E into downtown Dallas. Sadly, it can mean only one thing: we have yet another Darwin Awards candidate.
Scoot Along Now!

Definitely a death wish, or a tourist? A shoo – in for the Darwin Awards of which I have checked out, just now.
There are almost too many candidates for the Darwin Awards that I believe we should at least send out ‘Honorable Mentions’. They’re still trying to find out who that guy on the scooter is. It’s illegal in Texas to driver a scooter on a major thoroughfare, especially a major interstate highway! A death wish? Perhaps, but more of a total disregard for the motorists trying to get somewhere that morning.
Well, yes an narcissistic stuff-it-all kind of attitude was evident in the way he changed lanes. No helmet either I noted.
Yes, I noticed that, too! Makes me wonder if the eugenics movement should be renewed. LOL!
So you are required by law to wear helmets too?
Yes, scooter riders must be at least 16 years of age, carry liability insurance and wear a helmet while operating the machine. I suspect that particular scooter user didn’t fulfill the latter 2 categories. No word yet on IQ requirements.
Lol re IQ requirements! That made me chuckle. Liability insurance hasn’t yet been discovered here, for the Lime scooters anyway, or perhaps it has and I am not aware of it. I haven’t used one of them yet, and don’t plan to travel down the motorways on one. That must make me smart! – Well valuing my life and other’s lives, more than he did….
