Regulations are needed to reduce moped mayhem

Over the weekend there were at least five serious/fatal incidents involving moped riders throughout Hawaii.

Isn’t it time to regulate the owners and riders and require them to take a driving test and have a license and insurance? All of these accidents were the recklessness of the drivers, not the other vehicles or, in one case, the tree. Enough loss of life due to moped riders not paying attention and driving recklessly. Our lawmakers should have this as their wake-up call to deal with immediately.
