One the funniest and most touching stories i read in a long while: Stanley Murphy a 90year old scooter rider took a wrong turn and suddenly ended up on this 3-lane A-road - where cars normally speed with 70mph. The article says that "confused" Stan didnt know how he turned up there. Motorists called the police who then helped him getting home saying that they were unlikely to take any action against him.
*phew*so glad for good ol' Stanny. The thought they might lock him up with all the other rapists, thieves and bankers nearly broke my heart.
But the most interesting thing about this whole story is - that those electric scooters aren't naturally forbidden on those kind of roads - all you need is a number plate and a tax stamp!!! How cool!?! I sooo gonna get a scooter now!
