RIDER CRUISING DOWN THE FREEWA
ON MONDAY AROUND 1:00 IN THE
AFTERNOON. THEN, TWO MORE FOLLOWED CLOSELY
BEHIND. AS THEY MADE THEIR WAY DOWN THE
FREEWAY, THE LANES BEGAN TO
MERGE. THE ENDED UP CROSSING MULTIPLE
THREE LANES OF TRAFFIC, AND
LANDED ON THE GRASS ON THE NORTH
SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE. THEY CONTINUED TO RIDE ON THE
GRASS UNTIL MILWAUKEE COUNTY
SHERIFF DEPUTIES QUICKLY CAUGHT
UP WITH THEM.>>THE DEPUTIES ENDED UP GIVING
THE THREE PEOPLE A RIDE TO THE
25TH EXIT, HERE OFF OF
INTERSTATE 94. AND THEN THEY GAVE THEM A
CITATION FOR ABOUT $200 EACH.>>I THINK IT’S CRAZY TO DRIVE A
SCOOTER ON THE FREEWAY
>>WHY IS THAT? DANGEROUS, AND JUST YEAH. DANGEROUS TO EVERYONE. DANGEROUS TO THE PERSON DRIVING
THE SCOOTER AND DANGEROUS TO THE
CARS AND JUST A TERRIBLE IDEA. . — IDEA. THE THREE RIDERS TOLD
DEPUTIES THEY WERE FROM TEXAS,
TRYING TO GET TO THE HARLEY
DAVIDSON MUSEUM, WHEN THEIR GPS
TOOK THEM ONTO THE INTERSTATE. LEAVING THOSE ON THE OAK LEAF
TRAIL TUESDAY MORNING, BAFFLED. THEY’RE JUST FOLLOWING THEIR
GPS AND SOMEHOW IT TOOK THEM
ONTO THE FREEWAY. WHICH IT PROBABLY WOULD
BECAUSE IT’S PROBABLY THE
FASTEST ROUTE, RIGHT? BUT COMMON SENSE WOULD INDICATE
YOU WOULDN’T DO THAT. THEY SHOULD JUST KNOW. IT’S COMMON SENSE. THEY SHOULD KNOW NOT TO GO ON
THE FREEWA
IT’S JUST COMMON
