Look Both Ways, Or Not

A woman from Mallorca, Spain was interviewed about motorized scooter safety. The woman, to her credit, passed with flying colors, then proceeded on her way. And that’s where the fun begins.

This is a video from Mallorca of a woman being interviewed about the laws pertaining to the operation of electric scooters, then proceeding to cross a street after the safe-to-cross crosswalk has ended and immediately getting hit by a car. A transcription of the interview:

Interviewer: “What are the rules?”
Girl: “You can’t go anywhere unless it’s a cycle path or ACIRE (zones of restricted vehicle access in this city)… uhm… it’s still not mandatory to wear a helmet and you can’t wear headphones with music and I think at night you can go anywhere”.

Interviewer: “perfect”
Girl: (still finishing her answer)… “from like 10pm, more or less”

Interviewer: “you pass!!! Thank you!”
Girl: Byeee

The video of the incident is below the fold, and it will make your weekend.

That’s okay, chica; you can take a remedial exam a the next street corner.

Yeah, that’s gonna leave a mark.

  1. Okay, that made me laugh out loud when I watched it. Apparently being interviewed and passing went straight to her head and it overtook common sense. I love it when people just get so darn full of themselves they end up looking stupid. Karma strikes again.


  2. That’s pretty funny since she didn’t get hit too hard. I had to slam on my brakes today because some junkie on a bicycle pulling a trailer full of stolen property ran through a red light in front of me. And people wonder why decent folks are leaving this state.


  3. Ronni – I’m glad she wasn’t hurt, but maybe she should pay attention when crossing a four-lane street?

    Ingineer – Philly is the same way. Nearly every day driving to work, some hood rat just crosses the street expecting people to stop for them. It’s an entitlement attitude which drives me out of my mind.
