We here at MannDubinBlog stand in support of alternative forms of transportation, but we have our limits. Hybrids? Love ‘em. Smart Cars? Like ‘em. Scooters? We’ll deal with ‘em. Mini-ATV’s on our sidewalks? No way, Jose.
This picture was taken on a street in the neighborhood where we grew up. It’s a nice, middle class neighborhood with pretty lawns, lots of trees, and sidewalk lined streets. That’s the thing: these sidewalks lining the streets are not meant to be cluttered with grown-ass men on ATVs. I mean, this can’t possibly be legal, first of all. Second, where is this guy coming from and where is he going that the charge on his power wheels is sufficient? And, couldn’t he have walked?
I’d have sympathy for this guy if he were 8 years old. Instead, I’m kind of perturbed because it’s more likely that this is his DUI-mobile until he gets his license back. Come on, guy, spend the $1.75 and take the bus. You’d look a lot cooler.
Because the people seem to think that this kind of thing is OK, I hate Atlanta
