This just happend a few days ago in Kelowna at the Okanagan Valley.
 
I was thinking of sending it to scooter people, but they do not take much interest in any posts.
 
So what happens is this one driver sort of messed up a cage in front of it, but would not stop.  Gredit to a woman that did all she could to forced the cage driver to stop.  Some damage to her scooter & self, but by this time the RCMP arrived.  To find out the hit & run driver did NOT have a valid DL & no compulsory insurance.
 
So the damage to this woman's scooter or some to her skin will be her problem.  Still when you think of it that woman was trying to do what any cage driver should do BUT only with a 49cc scooter.


Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Smitty, I've been away, but I never heard that story,and I can't find anything about it on the web.

However, one nice thing about BC's compulsory insurance system--"underinsured motorist protection" is automatically included, so even if you're struck by an uninsured driver, you should never have to deal with the costs yourself (as long as your own insurance is up to date).

I did find a story about a scooter rider in Kelowna who was struck by a car, and got the driver's contact info--only to find out later the info was false (and she didn't think at the time to get the license plate #).

While the woman was a bit discourged by the hit & run driver she was counting on her insurance to cover this costs.  I hope she is correct.
 
Also this incident probably happened when you took your trip down to the States.
