Come on! Have you tried reading anything on those carts but the busted look on their faces as they whiz by trying to appear as if they havent done anything wrong. Numbers were NOT that easy to read and needed to be at least 12 inches high printed front side and back in order to have seen a number. ...

Maybe enough people can gather to NUMBER and DECORATE/Customise the golf carts and BMORG vehicles. This will curb some of the speeding about by making them identifiable and answerable to the public.

Depends on exactly the relationship between the business and the disabled person. No whiney fwad can expect a show up and take up chair space job. Perhaps you misunderstood me.

I don't understand the rules either. Seems like some of the quiet electric things were banned and some of the noisy stand up scooters were allowed. Doesn't seem fair. Simple version is that a line had to be drawn somewhere. The line that was chosen was whether the scooter had a seat or not rather t...

Not saying all can be fixed. But they can clean out the disabled tags from drunken party barges. Not sure what you mean by this as no "party barges" got handicapped licenses from the DMV at all.

The 50cc rule seemed to appear on-Playa this year. We had several people in our camp attempt to get sit-down scooters in. Those under 50cc's were allowed to bring them in and use them (grrr!). Those over 50cc's were impounded (yeah!). Plenty of pocket bikes, etc I saw, they all claimed the were "ex...

We were psyched because Annie got word from DMV that we'd get a license no problem.

Re: Go-Peds/Scooters/Pocket Bikes

I read up on the DMV requirements for art cars and other vehicles, and was wondering if scooters 'are' allowed, what about pocket-bikes, you know those mini-motorcycles with a 50cc or less? I heard from someone that anything under 50cc is allowed, but is this true? If pocket-bikes 'are not' allowed...

Re: yes

Yes, I agree that my perception of what the playa is really like is probably wrong. I do get a clear perception from reading eplaya that there is a concern about the total number of cars on the playa - whether that's rational or not I can't say. BLM seems to be partly driving it.

Yet the DMV changed to limit the vehicles, and do not hear of anything to address the problem of driver behavior. Have you asked? No. Have you done ANY research to find out? No. There are policies in place to handle "driver behavior" and have been for years. But you, as seems to be normal for you, ...

As a spectator how do you know the DMV is unreasonable? As a spectator: how do I know they are not? You don't. You don't have enough information as a spectator to know whether they are unreasonable or not. That didn't stop you, however, from making the blanket statement that they ARE unreasonable. ...
