Talk about stalling traffic..............

So I was driving home from work and suddenly I was stall by some type of massive traffic jam.. I thought to myself its not rush hour and there are 2 lanes.. what is holding up.. could it be a car accident? construction?.. but then I saw.. laughed... then thought to myself are you kidding me...

I risked getting a ticket and took this picture (in Ontario using a handle held device was illegal however I was stopped at a light so it was safe)



Not sure how she got on the road but any "vehicle going at that speed" should stay on the side walk.

It's funny how old people stop caring about stuff the older they get.

I *know* she was like "I have to go somewhere, and I'm going to ride my rascal to get there!"

No sense of shame.

I laugh with my buddies that this will be us in 20yrs.
We'll be modding rascals with suspensions and tweaking the electronics and adding hi-cap batteries to get more performance out of.
It's going to be a whole new market?
Get in on it now! It'll be the next big thing!

Rascal TTis performance package with summer performance rubber and optional winter spec track wheel/tire packages too.

Imagine your local track filled with hi-performance runabouts.
We'll show those young'uns!

I may be a prick, but I'd have screamed at her and\or called the cops.

Dangerous (and annoying) for her and everyone else. No excuse for it,

She has a side mirror. If she's got blinkers, it's road-legal!
