Nostalgic scooter video (1962)

The above is an interesting video about the state of motor scooters in 1962. Very well done!

Geez, I can't believe how crazy they were riding. Looks like most of Britain's roads do not have marked lanes. Riding/driving like that in the U.S. would be a demolition derby. And many of the riders were not wearing helmets.

all roads in britain have marked lanes aside from very minor country roads.

helmets are mandatory since 1973 and must meet safety specs.

At least it's not like the video in asia where they just randomly cut cars off and wonder why they get run over.

We didn't wear helmets in Tennessee in 1962 either.
