Lawn Ranger 0
Coming soon on Speeders:
In Boulder, Colorado, riding a lawn mower on a street or bike path is illegal. When citizens called to complain about a speeding lawn mower running wild on the streets, police were obligated to respond:
Police caught up with the mower – a black Yard Machines unit with a 21 horsepower engine – at the intersection of Harvard Lane and Auburn Street.
Reichenbach said the driver told officers that he was trying to donate the lawn equipment to Fairview High School and was riding it to the school to drop off.
. . . officers chose not to ticket the man because he wasn’t causing a problem.
“He was trying to be a good guy,” Reichenbach said. “We think his heart was certainly in the right place.”
They told him to park it and arrange for a truck.
