Over the past few days I have seen an Asian dude riding around on a pocket bike through Yaletown. The weird thing is, this lawnmower had a license plate. While I wonder how he got the plate in the first place, I must say it seems rather suicidal to ride this thing in traffic. When seated the helmet is not even high enough to look inside a sedan. Next to an SUV he pretty much looks at the wheel nut. My wife almost clipped the guy with our SUV when he tried to sneak by near an intersection.
I a all for fun and games, but endangering yourself on the road and potentially dragging others into an accident with a vehicle that is really not suited for regular traffic is just plain wrong.
