Getting around Bowling Green does not necessarily require a car or truck. Plenty of local residents, including the 20,000-plus students of Western Kentucky University, have discovered the convenience of navigating the town on two wheels. Bicycles, obviously, are a popular option. But for those needing to travel farther distances more quickly, a moped might do the trick.
Of course, all moped riders should always exercise caution when sharing the roadways with other motor vehicles. In a one-year period, Bowling Green logged 35 collisions involving mopeds, according to the Kentucky State Police. A significant number of those accidents occurred on the streets surrounding WKU. Fortunately, no fatalities resulted. However, 26 people sustained injuries.
Unfortunately, as the number of Bowling Green moped riders increases, riders will likely experience more accidents. After all, during that same time, 12 people died in moped accidents in other cities and towns around the Commonwealth.
