How to look Italian on a moped…

my lovely moped

1) If it’s quicker, drive the wrong way down one way streets. (guilty)

2) Carry passengers on the back without a helmet if you’ve left the other one in the house. (guilty)

3) If you do wear a helmet, don’t fasten it because then you’ll look like you’re afraid to die. (not guilty)

4) Always drive on the outside of queueing traffic, thereby ensuring everyone turning onto the street nearly hits you. (guilty)

5) Park your moped wherever you like, e.g. on the pavement right outside someones front door, next to the cash machine so you can get cash whilst still seated or blocking the trolley park at the supermarket. (hmmm guilty to the cash machine)

6) Pay absolutely no attention to zebra crossings or traffic lights…they don’t apply to mopeds. (guilty on both counts)

7) Drive on pavements if you need/want to…you can slow down for old people and babies, but only if you feel like it. (Guilty, hangs head in shame)

  4. Watch it, Yael, I figured out some years ago that when a moped gets aggressive with a pedestrian, a swift kick to the side is much harder on the mopedder than on me. I can’t be the only one who knows that.
