Surprise Ride

Woodhaven scooterOk, so we know the weather is getting warmer, but maybe don’t freak everyone out by driving around New York City in a three-wheel scooter at rush hour.

QConf was shocked and concerned when we spotted this woman riding a scooter northbound on Woodhaven Boulevard at rush hour last week.

First, because drivers turning left onto 101st Avenue didn’t appear to see her behind a Dodge Ram van in front of her, and the lead car abruptly aborted his turn when she appeared from behind the van to switch from the center to the left lane.

The question we at QConf are asking now is, does this mode of transportation violate Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero rules?

At least she was wearing a helmet.
