I don't think that I'm rotten just because neither I, nor the Calif. DMV, nor
local police are sure of the laws pertaining to mopeds. I, as well as others,
*are tying to obey the laws*, its just that nobody seems to know quite what
the rules are. I have been riding mopeds (and motorcycles & scooters &
bicycles) in this state for 30 plus years, no, make that 40+, what with the
bicycles, and I have mostly tried to obey what ever rules were in force at the
time, as far as they were reasonable.
And I don't have a criminal record. None that you can find anyway ;>)
Maybe I just never have been caught, hey?
Maybe, I'm so rotten that the cops look the other way so as not to have deal
with me? I don't think so.
