they've made electric scooters legal here now and they are all over the place, No pedals, no restrictions, no bell but plenty dickheads have them, another crazy rule because of the restrictions on public transport, No

You can hire them in Calgary and they leave them all over the place. We were in LA last year and there were scooters dumped everywhere. There were docking stations but they left them anywhere.

I went there once, back in 2002 and enjoyed that road that goes for miles down the beaches, You can hire a bike or skates or a skate board and go down the road and drop them off at another beach, no motor vehicles then but of course, electric bikes had not been invented then, It will be a different story now, Crying or Very sad

My apologies to the cycling fraternity. Eleven bikes passed us as we were walking tonight and all had bells. It isn’t a scooter I see but ( this is from memory) it looks like a “ self balancing one wheel electric scooter” They go very fast. I don’t know how they stop, slow down etc.

unfortunately many of the riders don't know how to stop either, kids as young as 10 ride them with no understanding of road awareness or rights of way, and a lot of so called grown up dont either , in this video, I'm on a shared path, cyclists and pedestrians I cycling towards a group of people and they are unaware of me coming, the walking zombies, I slow down but they are taking the whole pavement and completely not paying attention

My dreams are answered. Just been for a walk. It has snowed and was a balmy -4 and only saw one bike. The footpath/ cycle path is cleared of snow continuously so that isn’t the problem. We pay a horrific $7.00 a year (£4.00) to have it kept clear. Thirteen tears ago it was $12.00 so something has reduced in price.

Isn't there a bike horn that you can put your own sound on?

This would be apt in circumstances.

Thats the camera that I had the problems with video/sound sync, The Video app VLC caught each clip up by freezing the video at every few secnds till the audio caught up , So I deleted the audio and just shot the video , Now my new more expensive one has come and trials start today,

Very Happy

Get a battery bank, Tomp,m
I bought this, but I ended up needing one powerful enough to start a 6l diesel, so I got a NOCO.

I still have it somewhere, unused.
