The new law requires riders of scooters under 250cc to wear a bright colored vest. I looked at Walmart and I plan to check out AutoZone. Does anyone know where I can find one of these vests? I have been wearing a bright yellow fleece vest this winter and I can tell that I'm much more visible so it's definitely a good law.

You might try that sport store in the Laguna Plaze adjacent to the new casino.

How could we live without the Dollar/Misc store! It does tend to have everything you need!

Does it specitically say scooters?

Might this apply to one of the small ATV/Quads, which is what I have?

It's scooters under 500cc. Supposedly larger cycles make enough noise to be heard. The smaller scooters are not as visible also. This is all true, but in fact, even riding a 1300cc they didn't see me. For that reason, even when I owned Harleys, I didn't wear all black. The vest is a good idea, but I've had to guard against having a false sense of security.

Original talk was you had to have the scooter License plate number on your high visibility jackets. They thought this might stop the snatch and grab crime problem of scooters in Guadalajara. It didn't happen.
