Moped Safety

These are two vintage Moped safety films. They were originally filmed in 1979 on 16 mm film. This was in the days just after the Gas crisis of the 1970's in the USA. Note all the small, fuel efficient cars seen in this film. It appears that most of these films were shot in the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles, Californa. Anyone know where, specifically? Please share the info. Thanks.

A moded is a bicycle with working pedals for human power and a motor. In this case it is a gasoline motor. But perhaps the same safety procedures can be adapted for use on an electric bycles as well.

It would be great to see some good electric bicycle safety films/videos get produced, which can illustrate the safe and legal way to ride electric bicycle in public spaces.
