You should be speaking to an attorney about the matter if you feel you really need to pursue it, as city-data or any other online board really isn't the place where people should be offering legal advice (or you should take it).

Regarding the scooter in general - Atlanta's not Europe. Scooters are fine in Brussels or riding around Amsterdam or even in many inner city neighborhoods in Atlanta, but on the Interstate or State highways around Atlanta... no. It's not wise to push the boundaries of scooter speeds or for that matter what you think the tolerance of them should be, when you're surrounded by tens of thousands of drivers who all average 15mph over the posted speed limit. You will lose in the court as well as when one of those drivers decides to earn points by knocking you off the road.

I'm one who feels the average Atlanta driver is insane, and I obey the speed laws more than the average driver, but I'm not pushing it either.

I'd bet money that you looked like a total tool riding that scooter 30 in a 60mph. LOL!

Not only does the word "stupid" apply, but also the words "100 points!"

Not nice, but why am I laughing (LMAO)????


(I tend to feel sorry for scooter riders. More of a safety issue, fearing some clown will run them over. To the OP, please listen to those telling you to seek an alternate route. That's so unsafe. Be careful.)
