    I would highly recommend that moped drivers put very visible reflectors all over their bikes and helmets. Maybe even a reflective vest,and as someone said previously, sufficient lights as well. I saw the aftermath of this accident and it was not pretty. Be careful out there!

    My husband and I are both moped riders and we have been on m-99 several times. We would like to find out just what the investigation showed so maybe we could make our bikes more visible to other drivers. Please follow up on a future news program.

    No word on the condition of the other drive..Well let's see...He was driving an automobile..and rear ended a MOPED...I would say...that the POOR moped driver suffered alot worse then the driver of the motor vehicle. Sad story here..Hope they find out more with an investigation. Like how someone could not see a moped and its rider.

    Was the moped running with lights and was the driver wearing a helmet?
