    I know everyone has to get around the best they can but some of the moped riders have a total disregard for traffic.They have a nind set that we owe it to them to take up the whole drive lane and they just drive right in front of you as if they do not even see you. I’m not surprised that there are not more fatalities. The good lord does look after all of us!

    I remember when you had to have a driver’s license to operate one and also a tag on the moped.

  4. don’t you have to have all that if you drive on the public roads?

    IMO, any vehicle using the public roads should have to have the same rules.
    license
    tags
    insurance

    I don’t think so. I see a lot of them with no tag and I don’t think insurance is required either.

    According to the NCDOT Division of Motor Vehicles, a “moped does not have to be registered, inspected or covered by liability insurance.” A moped cannot exceed 30 mph on a level surface.

    These things need to be outlawed. I have thought many times to contact the legislator and have them make a law on the mopeds(or scooters) the people that operate them have no regard for safety or road rules. They drive them without any insurance, tags, registration, etc. 99.9% of the operators don’t have a valid license because they lost theirs or had them revoked at one time; therefore that is why the have these scooters. Try running up on one at dark when they have no lights, reflectors and the rider is wearing dark. i have seen them cut in front of traffic, dart in and out and carry multiple riders.

    I was behind two the other day. They were riding abreast of each other going down NC 39 at a speed of 40-45 mph(in a 55 MPH zone). And of course traffic was backed up and patience was thin.
