This one goes out to all the kooks who apparently can’t read. There are signs posted on either end of the bike/pedestrian path in the airport/Sprecks area stating “No motorized vehicles,” so why can’t you abide by them? When you ride your scooter on this narrow path, not only are you putting others at risk for injury, but also yourself and your piece of crap scooter. Have you not noticed that there are mothers pushing strollers, families on walks together, small keiki wearing roller skates and joggers all on the path, abiding by the rules? I use this path nearly every day and wear an iPod, so I can’t hear when you speed past me. Once you and your scooter gang surrounded me and nearly ran me over, another time your kite gear flew off the back and nearly knocked into me and still another time you flew around a blind corner and nearly nailed me. Don’t worry, our association knows what obviously painted scooters/motorized bicycles you ride, and it’s only a matter of time before you get not only ticketed, but hospitalized and/or sued from injuring others.
