Unicorn points for the Rascal scooter driver not being 400lbs!
Here in Ohio mobility scooters, since they are speed limited to under 25 mph and are considered to be a handicap device instead of a vehicle, are permitted to drive on any city, county, or state road which does not restrict pedestrian traffic, without any warning markings of any kind.
And the only roads I'm aware of that restrict pedestrian traffic are the Turnpike and I-90.
I see them cruising down our local county road (55 mph limit, 2 lane, no hard shoulder) IN the lane all the time.

A lot of Rascal-Riders in my area drive on the road even where there are sidewalks just because Albany Sidewalks are in such bad shape... I'm not sure how well a Rascal would deal with a split sidewalk that rose vertically 2-4".
