    Was the person on the scooter wearing any safety gear? If not, the person on the scooter had that coming. Was speeding or reckless driving factors? If so, the person on the scooter had that coming. Was the scooter being operated within the street illegally and/or without tags? If so, had it coming. Given the height of the undercarriage on the average motor scooter and the size of the speed bumps over there, it should be almost physically impossible to go over those speed bumps without doing serious damage to the undercarriage of the scooter. The average IQ of individuals from that area is probably between 70-80 so it was likely someone who lived in that area operating the motor scooter.

      motor scooters, bikes, ect. are all welcome to the roadways no matter if you have a license. the ignorance of your statement is baffling. the operator of the motor vehicle (the suv) is at fault… not the scooter operator. if you hit someone with your car that is on a bike, scooter, or motorcycle, it’s because you weren’t focused on the road. car operators need to pay more attention. I bet you if you got hit from behind by a car on a bike or motor bike, you wouldn’t make this same statement. look up the right of way laws in Maryland and try to say you’re right…..

        So if you are driving down the road, minding your business, and someone pulls out in front of you, and you plow into them, its your fault? I don’t know what the scenario was in this case any more than you do, but your blanket statement that any and all accidents involving a bike/scooter/motorcycle is the fault of the vehicle driver is asinine at best

    The scooter driver was wearing a helmet but he flew into the grass upon impact. The scooter ran the stop sign and there was no chance the SUV could have stopped. I hope the scooter driver will be okay. It was in n way the fault of the driver and that could have easily been any one of us. The SUV was not speeding.

    To Anonymous…”The average IQ of individuals from that area is probably between 70-80 so it was likely someone who lived in that area operating the motor scooter.” That wasn’t nice.

      Karma? IQ? Shame on you! He is a PERSON! And fyi, he just bought the scooter 2 or 3 days before. So no, he wasn’t ALWAYS riding it anywhere.

    He just bought the scooter a few days before. Don’t say always and karma, unless you actually have correct information. No one deserves to be seriously injured no matter what. Think twice, or you know…..karma
