Motorcycles have served as a fun way to recreate for many years. In recent years, we have seen mopeds gain popularity. As gas prices continue to soar, we are seeing more of these wonderfully fuel efficient motored bikes used as a regular mode of transportation. Whether it is recreation or basic transportation the riders follow the same road rules and have the same rights to the road as an automobile driver.
Just over the weekend in Summerville, Dorchester County, a couple riding a motorcycle was struck by a reported drunk driver. The man from the motorcycle is suffering from broken bones and the woman, who has recently recovered from breast cancer, is suffering from a head injury.
Two years ago West of the Ashley in Charleston County, a couple was riding a moped and was struck by a drunk driverThe man from the moped died and the woman sustained injuries that will affect her for the rest of her life. Same scenario, but a moped involved instead of a motorcycle.
