Police tell Ind. House leader of scooter concerns

EVANSVILLE (AP) — Evansville police outlined their concerns about the proliferation of motorized scooters with Indiana's top legislator during a visit to the city.

House Speaker Brian Bosma of Indianapolis met with officers at the request of Evansville's mayor to hear why they want tougher rules for operating the vehicles.

Sgt. Jason Cullum tells the Evansville Courier & Press that almost two-thirds of scooter operators involved in crashes have suspended driver's licenses and nearly all of them don't have insurance.

State legislators debated a proposal for tougher scooter laws during this year's session, but it didn't win approval.

Bosma says he's becoming more inclined to support increase regulation, although some are concerned about infringing on the rights of those who need inexpensive transportation.
