    No sympathy. Kid that young knows the rules. Hope he gets charged, fined, and his folks have to pay all costs plus putative damages. In this “I’m entitled” world we live in, it’s about time people pay a price for their mistakes. Unless of course he’s black, then it’s ok.

      If you look at that intersection, you will see the curve to the South. Just a guess, there were cars along there and moped rider couldn’t see a car coming.

      I do agree, it probably was the riders fault. I would also bet that there are a lot of accidents at that intersection.
