Man Builds Flamethrower for His Scooter

Colin Fruze was tired of drivers following his scooter too closely, so he developed a flamethrower to ward them off:

'The flames are pretty big and up to 15ft long so you could definitely set fire to someone's car if you wanted to.'

'The only problem is it can get rather hot if you are riding the moped and blast the flames when the wind is in the wrong direction.'[...]

'It was quite tricky to make and the first version wouldn't fire the flames when the moped was moving,' he said.

'My second attempt kept setting fire to itself, but my third version works really well and I'm very pleased with it.'

But sadly Colin, who built the moped in his spare time in his back garden, will not legally be allowed to use it on the road.

Tim0, I hear you.

Sometimes I debate whether or not I should carry rocks in my pocket or something. People in my area must have gone to a special driving school where red means go and pedestrians are worth extra points.

If it were legal to kick cars and dent them everytime some asshat decides to push the envelope with me, I'm sure drivers would realise that their sheepish facial expressions are not enough of an apology.

Back when I rode motorcycles, some of my riding buddies would just carry a few large, heavy ball bearings in their pockets....
