So my Darling Husband and I share a car and a 49cc scooter. I haven’t really rode the scooter too much in the past because we didn’t have a helmet. well Mother-In-Law bought us one yay! and Darling Husband took the car to work today. since i didnt want to spend all day sitting in the house, i decided i’d take the scooter to my job since my friend is working today and i could help her out.
i get halfway down the street and i notice when i slow down the scooter shuts off. it happens again on the next street so i decide i’m just going to ride it around the neighborhood and see if it stops.
i pull up to the next stop sign to make the turn and all of a sudden it accelerates (and i swear, i don’t know why. i had my hand on the accelerator cuz its on the handle but i was not turning it)…and scrapes against the side of this old lady’s car i pull on the handlebar brake and it falls right over on top of me 🙁
since we live in florida and insurance isn’t required on 49cc scooters…we don’t have it. so thats just $$$ right down the drain 🙁 and the woman whose car it was freaked me out by saying she could call the cops and have me arrested.
i gave her my info so just waiting to hear back about how much the damage will cost…
i’m just so stinkin mad at myself 🙁 but Darling Husband was awesome and so supportive.
and i know i should be thankful no one was hurt. especially since hubbys cousin got into a terrible accident on a scooter where he had to spend almost 3 months in the hospital. i just got a little scraped up when it fell over but its a darn good thing i had that helmet cuz my head hit the pavement pretty hard.
but i’m never riding that stupid thing again.
sorry this is so long. i’ve already called Darling Husband, parents, inlaws and friend at work but i’m just sitting at home by myself feeling like crap and i needed someone else to vent to! 🙁
