oh, quite observer...i am

oh, quite observer...i am with u 100%!

Yes,he should be charged

If a person can be arrested for drunk driving while pedaling a bicycle or riding a horse or lawn mower on the roadway, then yes a person on a motorized scooter SHoULD be arrested for manslaughter by causing his passengers death.

So True

Pecan non you are absolutely right!!! I see double riding all the time. The police should feel some guilt for not enforcing the laws! If the 17 year old were in a car he would face charges for this death. The moped should not be exempt from traffic laws. He is just as guilty as he would have been in a car. Maybe if they start holding them responsible they would act with a little more sense.

THIS WAS TRULY A TRAGEDY AND

THIS WAS TRULY A TRAGEDY AND A YOUNG LIFE TAKEN WAY TO EARLY. HOWEVER, THE ORIGINAL REPORT STATED THE MOPED TURNED IN FRONT OF THE CAR! CLEARLY HE WAS NOT OBEYING TRAFFIC LAWS. ALSO PASSENGERS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON MOPEDS AND HELMETS ARE REQUIRED. I DO NOT KNOW ANY OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED BUT I KNOW THE CAR DRIVER HAS A TREMENDOUS MENTAL BURDEN TO DEAL WITH. IF THE MOPED TURNED IN FRONT OF HER HOW IS SHE AT FAULT? IF ANYONE IS AT FAULT IT IS OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR ALLOWING THESES YOUNG PEOPLE AND YES OLD PEOPLE AS WELL TO RIDE ILLEGALLY. THESE LAWS HAVE GOT TO START BEING ENFORCED AND MORE LEGISLATION IS NEEDED TO BE PASSED!
