Though this may not apply to this situation, I have seen many moped riders weaving in and outside between vehicles often nearly avoiding collisions. When will HPD begin cracking down on these clowns? Aren't they supposed to follow the same laws of operating a motorized vehicle on the road?

You know, I see many moped riders speeding, weaving, grandstanding near my house.on modified mopeds. However, after a year or so,I don't see the SAME moped riders speeding, weaving and grandstanding. Odds are, they're crashing and injuring themselves. It's a kharma thing.

Why am I not surprised? I drive there daily and have to dodge mopeds recklessly and dangerously weaving in out of traffic. I have had several very near misses when the cut in front of you without any second thought or warning. The other people are right, where is HPD? The traffic violations are numerous and obvious. Don't tell me that they are too busy to conduct some traffic enforcement. I know better.

The 67 year old injured moped rider does not fit the profile of the reckless/ aggressive pu nk kid weaving in and out of lanes, driving recklessly. Maybe more likely scenario with this rider is diminished ability and reflexes to safely ride a two wheeled vehicle due to advanced age? This elderly moped rider might not be 100 percent at fault but the older one gets, the slower their reflexes and ability to drive defensively to avoid collision. It is already very dangerous for moped and bicycle riders on Oahu's roads to deal with drivers who continue to yap on their cellphones and are not paying attention, do NOT use turn signals when turning or changing lanes, disregard stop signs or red lights, etc
