Unregistered bikes and scooters parking where ever they please is becoming a trend around here. (Copyright 2022 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.)

This is a problem all throughout Central Florida, but an even bigger issue down in Kissimmee. Unregistered scooters and bikes all across the area, driving around like they own the place.

This one here though, “Let me just park in the loading zone of a disabled parking space.” Either keep it at home or put a license plate on it.

Creative, legal, but be careful. (Copyright 2022 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.)

Next up, creativity at its finest. Nothing illegal here, but definitely a “What The Honk” moment. Material like this makes this segment possible.

This is the type of vehicle you would need to make sure that you are overly cautious when next to the pump.

I got to be honest, I have never seen a vehicle constructed mostly of wood. Love it.

If you find yourself in the wrong lane, just go with the flow and correct yourself later.

Some would think this isn’t a big deal while others obviously see the issue here.

I always say: Don’t make your mistakes other drivers’ mistakes.

This would technically be running a red light, or an improper turn. If you find yourself in the wrong traveling lane, just go with the flow and correct yourself later. If another driver was not expecting this driver’s detour, this could have been a mess.
