Whatcha Doin' There, Scooter?

A lot of folks won't see anything wrong with this. It's a scooter parked in the spot beneath a stairwell in a parking garage.

Now, scooters are a licensed motor vehicle. They're registered with the DMV and have to obey the same rules of the road as grown up vehicles. The same is true for parking lots. Just because something CAN fit into an area doesn't mean it SHOULD go in there. If that line of thinking were true, there'd be a LOT more anal sex happening in the world today (except where prohibited by law).

Yes, scooters are a target for morons looking to raise hell in parking garages and tip things over. And yes, it looks ridiculous seeing one wee little scooter taking up a full parking space. But you DID buy the damn thing and agree to treat it like a regular vehicle. So learn to park it like one.

Personally, I blame parking lot developers for not making specific spaces for motorcycles. While I'm sure that's a headache in itself, it would be appreciated by the two wheeled community.

My real problem with this scooter parked here? He's parked in the spot where I take crack whores to fornicate with. You bastard!

So Learn To Park, Jerk!
