Changes in California "Goped" Laws sign now

To: Mr. Tom Lantos,

We are the riders of motorized scooters that live in California. We have noticed a new law that has been made for us to be unable to ride unless we have a permit/license, that we are 16 or over, and that we have to have stock settings on our scooters. That law says that we have to have all of these requirements filled or we cannot ride at all. These laws have a consequence that states, we can have our scooters impounded and a big fine. Many teens and others ride these scooters to work or to have fun or transportation and it is a really big deal to us that have to do one of those things mentioned. I have found that they are a big saver on gasoline and it doesn't pollute as much as a car. Many people who have scooters use them since "we" cannot get a permit or license since it cost money. It's not fair to the ones who cannot get these requirements since they might not have the money or have age requirements. You could by chance keep the age requirements but change the permit/license part since not all of us can get one. The law has been the same for so many years and there hasnt been a problem with it, but then it goes and has been changed again. We would like to continue riding these motor vehicles without someone suspecting us to cause a major accident. If you have heard of a accident caused by this product, dont take it out on all of the riders out there.
