This is NYC where many like to boast that they remove their license plate so they can park on the sidewalk with impunity. I notice that those two scooters do not appear to be displaying license plates. Maybe that wasn't as good a plan as believed.

Brave soul. I'd be too terrified to try that without MASSIVE amounts of padding and packaging. Equal parts superstition and risk of shards.
Assuming they made the trip successfully...BRAVO!!! Clap emoticon

Vehicles without plates are considered abandoned.
If the owner was "crafty" enough to remove the VIN # ID plate they will never get it back because there is no way to identify the vehicle.
Solution: Park legally.

I never had the guts to say what I wanted to when asked that question.
Maybe because I like to stay out of hospitals...

Well I'm back after more than 5 years away from modernvespa.com . My GTV and LXV are still in the hands of family members, but I miss both of them.
