When you've got to go, best not go-kart
A man has been fined 1,000 yuan (US$145) for riding a go-kart in the street, Shanghai police said on Wednesday.
A video of the man, who was only identified by the surname as Ye, riding the go-kart at the intersection of Dahua Road and Dahua No.2 Road on June 23 went viral on the Internet and caught attention of Baoshan District police.
Police tracked Ye down and he admitted that the person in the video was him.
The kart was purchased for his grandson as a toy. While Ye was playing with it with his grandson in his residential complex he got a call from a colleague who asked him to go to the office immediately, so he rode the kart to work and then back home.
Police remind go-kart, segway and electric scooter owners that these vehicles are banned from the roads along with mobility devices for elderly people. They may only be used on pathways in closed compounds or indoors.
