Man Tows Boat Through Traffic With Mobility Scooter [Watch]
Where there's a will there's a way, right? Looking at this video of a man towing a boat through traffic with his motorized wheelchair is possibly the best living example of that saying you're likely to see.
When it's time to wet a line, you can't let the fact you don't have a truck to tow your boat stop you right?
In the original video posted to Facebook by Christoper Jacoby, you see an El Cajon, California man putting in work to get his boat to the water and do some fishing.
Assuming he didn't have a better vehicle to tow his boat, he used what he had available at the time.
A mobility scooter.
From 97x.com -
"The man was barely 'driving' at a walking speed. The trailer plus the boat and this chair had to be towing upwards of 1,200 pounds. Meant to handle a single person weighing as much as 350 pounds, this guy has to be maxing out the capabilities of that poor motorized chair."
Clearly, there are quite a few questions that arise after watching this video.
Is this legal?
According to California motorized scooter laws, it is legal to operate motorized scooters up to 30 MPH on California roads.
After he made his turn, if he was able to pick up his speed then, he was not breaking any motorized scooter laws.
If somehow he was able to hook up the tail lights of his boat to his scooter, then he was clear on that towing law as well.
One of the biggest questions we have is, how in the world was that scooter able to pull that much weight?
