House Speaker Brian Bosma met last week with Evansville police officers to hear why they want tougher rules for operating mo-peds. Police Sgt. Jason Cullum said two-thirds of mo-ped operators involved in crashes have suspended licenses and almost all of them have no insurance, the Evansville Courier & Press reported.
The bill that passed the House last session also called for mo-ped operators to register their rides with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Passage of such a bill would be welcome news to police officers and prosecutors throughout the state.
