Commuter On Death Wish Rides Electric Scooter On Texas Highway!

Renting an electric scooter can be a convenient way to get through narrow and congested city streets.

However, that’s about all they’re good for. Electric scooters should not be ridden on the highway under any circumstance but that’s exactly what one commuter recently did in Dallas, Texas.

This dashcam video from a Texas local shows traffic flowing slowly along the 35 highway when out of nowhere, a man riding an electric scooter comes into view. The man can initially be seen in the left-most lane with cars following him closely behind.

As the video continues, the cammer can be heard shouting “Bro! What are you doing?!” as the scooter rider cuts across six lanes of traffic to eventually get over to the right. As if simply riding an electric scooter, which appears to be one from LimeBike, on a highway wasn’t stupid enough, the man is wearing a set of headphones, likely blocking out the sound of traffic around him.

While it could be possible to accidentally ride an electric scooter onto a highway in an area you’re unfamiliar with, the fact that the rider was traveling in the left lane indicates to us that this was no mistake. And no, we really can’t imagine what went through his mind…

As the man aggressively cuts across traffic, it is certainly possible that he could have been struck by an inattentive driver and seriously injured or even killed. Here’s hoping police get their hands on this video and ensure this doesn’t happen again.

    Medication, sadly, cannot cure stupid. He deserves two years in prison for his stupidity. No exceptions. Late for work or not. Car broken down or whatever the excuse is.

  • TrevP

    Yep, that’s a death wish for sure.

  • no25

    He did this to be funny, and it’s not. He could have seriously injured himself or multiple drivers. He deserves to be put in jail for a long time.

    This is obviously wrong.
    He should be riding in the right lane.☺️

    ….in the left lane with the headphones on his fukin head! what a retard!

    this millenial form of transportation is legal for about a week here in germany and we already had a NUTcase of someone driving this on the AUTOBAHN…insane times.

      Insane times? You have grandpas driving the WRONG way of the autobahn daily. What’s insane is that they put a 20kph limit on electric scooters. These vehicles are WAY more eco-friendly than cars. They should be endorsed and not the opposite.

    Only way this gets worse is if someone tries to pull a Marty McFly and hold onto the back of a truck while on a skateboard…doing 65mph-80mph.
