The Nashville Metropolitan Police Dept has started issuing Honda Ruckus scooters to bicycle officers as an alternative, and the officers love 'em! Strangely enough, they are issuing them to officers who do not have motorcycle endorsements. I do hope they are at least taking a familiarization course! The story (on Nashville's News Channel 5 WTVF) claims that a MC endorsement isn't required for 50cc scoots. That's news to me.
