Starting October 1, Maryland’s moped and scooter drivers will be required not only to title and register their vehicles, but also to wear helmets and eye protection.

Congratulations, mopedders and scooterers! Now you can go ahead and get those sick retro goggles that you’ve always known would look great on you, but you’ve been afraid to wear, lest you are accused of being a fashion victim! Seriously, you guys are all going to look awesome from now on. Now if only they’ll pass a law requiring that you wear a long white scarf and a bomber jacket.

According to Fox 45’s website, “the drivers of motor scooters and mopeds are required to follow the same rules of the road as bicycles.” So, based on observation, I guess that means that scooter and moped drivers should feel free to drive on the sidewalk, head the wrong way down one-way streets, and run stop signs and red lights. Good luck out there!
