Watch: Lime Scooter Rider on I-35 Is Too Brave for His Own Good

Count this among the many, many times when discretion would've been the better part of valor.

At about five minutes to 9 a.m. Monday, according to the time stamp on a dash cam video uploaded to YouTube, commuters heading north out of downtown Dallas on I-35 saw something they had to have thought was a hallucination. 

Starting in the left lane, a Lime scooter rider appears on the freeway, despite a Texas law that requires scooters to stick to roads with speed limits of 35 miles per hour or under. He's riding confidently without a helmet, switching multiple lanes in an attempt, apparently, to make a right exit.

The guys filming the video react as anyone would.

"Bro, what are you doing," one of them says. "That is the most wild thing I've ever seen."
