For two San Antonio men, Sunday night cruising meant scooting up the Interstate 35 North ramp to Highway 281 South as cars zipped past.

The electric scooter duo was spotted on the shoulder of the sharp curve of the highway near downtown by a MySA staff member around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Given the low visibility and tight space, the scooter traffic was causing a backup as cars attempted to safely exit onto I-37 without hitting the men.

The San Antonio Police Department said no calls were received pertaining to the two men on the highway.

“This type of behavior is dangerous, and does not happen too often,” SAPD Public Information Officer Christoper Ramos said.

He added that bicyclists or pedestrians are more often seen on the shoulders of San Antonio highways.

Ramos said tickets can be issued for riding a “mobility device” on a highway under the Texas Transportation code.
