NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Tennessee Department of Transportation cameras captured a man riding a scooter along interstates in Nashville Thursday morning.
TDOT cams first picked up the man at the Silliman Evans Bridge on Interstate 24 around 11:15.
The man traveled an estimated four miles before he was stopped near the Briley Parkway exchange on I-40 around 11:30 a.m.
An officer spoke with the man before he placed the scooter into the patrol car and they drove away.
Metro police said the man was visiting Nashville and was on his way to the airport. He was dropped off at a gas station by the officer who stopped him on the interstate and issued a warning.
It is considered a misdemeanor regulatory violation to ride a scooter on the interstate, which means it is up to the officer’s discretion if they want to write a citation.
No additional information was immediately released.
