De eerlijke brommer
Of course, they all exceed it regularly.
This is normal. They also tend to push ahead at lights and jockey for position at the front of the line so they can speed freely as soon as the light turns green.
This means they are spewing fumes (and noise) all over the cyclists behind them.
Whenever I stop for a red and there is a scooter rider present, I try to pull up next to them, not behind them. For other cyclists, I will wait behind in order of arrival at the light.
I know it's probably irrational to be upset about a scooter's exhaust when the cars are only a few feet away... but it's hard not to find them annoying. I noticed the sticker recently and love it! I appears to be part of a campaign for change.
