I cannot begin to comprehend the levels of stupidity involved in this decision. Someone actually woke up and thought, “Hm, roads are flooded from giant piles of melting snow. Flooding is exacerbated by a steady rain, which combines with dark skies to provide for lowered visibility. What a perfect day to take my underpowered scooter with tires that are poorly matched for the weather out for a spin on the highway”. I only hope the poor bastard who will inevitably wind up scrubbing this guys guts off of his tires isn’t too traumatized.
