knew my comments on the proposed moped legislation would light up my
inbox. And for a week that is supposed
to be all about love, some of you weren't showing much love for the moped
a two to one margin, most agreed that the legislation aimed at licensing and
registration for mopeds is a good first step.
Safety, liability, taxing
fairness, all the way to environmental issues and inconvenience were linked to
arguments on both sides of this.
Some pointed out that
many moped riders are people who have lost their licenses because of drunk
driving convictions. And I couldn't find
a whole lot of love in those emails either.
But most of the folks
who disagreed with me and want to keep the laws as they are for mopeds also
point out that bicycles have been allowed on our highways for years. One person made a very good point with this
like to see you go from Wilmington to Southport without getting on a road with
a posted speed limit higher than 30 mph. Oh wait, you can't."
And I received an email from a person that would like to take to the airwaves to share his thoughts on this. And he puts a twist on it that I hadn't considered. We'll hear from him one week from today in a "Guest My Turn" segment. Please try to join us.
