Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 19, 1970 You Ask Me.. By STEVE BAREHAM MOVE council last week lo prevent 14 and 15 year olds from getting licences to operate motor scooters smacked of discrimination and was backed by contradictory data. The reasons pushed for climinnting this age group from the traffic flow on city streets were noise pollution and safety. Safety would obviously be the prime reason. Figures pre- sented to council by one alderman were misleading. They suggested the number of scooter accidents for the period from the start of 1970 to now was 29, whereas last year for the same pciicd there were only 19. But what age group is involved in the greatest number of scooter 16 to 20 year group. That's what police records indicate. It would be grossly unjust'to penalize the younger group for this accident increase. And too, you must make a comparison in the number oE scooters in operation during the same periods each year lo get a more accurate evaluation. Maybe the rate didn't even rise on a percentage basis. If, according to the figures presented to council, SO per cent of all the scooter operators are in the 14-15 year age group and the older group has the greater number of acci- dents, doesn't this speak well for the younger? As for noise pollution, I think it's not the smaller scooters ridden by the younger riders that are offensive. The real bark comes from the powerful bikes operated by the older group. The smaller scooters are like bumble bees compared to the lion's roar of the unmuffled big-power bikes. And have you noticed how many of the younger group use their. scooters for part-time jobs and transportation to and from so much for bcmbidg around. Saying these young people are not mature enough to handle scooters fades when you consider the lack of maturity evident in the unfounded "backing" of the motion in council to rescind the privilege of the 14 and 15 year olds having motor scooter operator's licences.
