Confusing the word "moped" with "tricycle" in YouTube
Hi. When I go into YouTube and type in "tricycle commute," (without quotes and comma), when I go to watch YouTube videos and see them commuting, why is it that they confuse/misplace a word "moped" as "tricycle?" Is moped really
A moped is a vehicle having two brakes (one side of the seat) and with a pedal on the front of the seat. The seat is very low to the ground, which is pretty much in-line with the wheels in the side, located in the back. A tricycle, in the other hand, is like a bicycle, except that it has three wheels instead of two. One difference between riding a moped and riding a tricycle is that with a moped, you have to have a license to drive a moped, but with a tricycle, it is just like riding a bicycle, since you don't have to have a drivers license. But just to be completely sure, you have to have a drivers license to ride a moped in all 50 states. Am I correct?
Here's an example when I get a selection of videos listed with the keywords "tricycle commute" (again, no quotes):
I did not see handlebars in any videos (well, except for some but that's quite irrelevant when it comes to commuting with tricycles).
I'm not trying to criticize anyone who created videos at all for those who mixed up the word "moped" with "tricycle," but I'm just curious, that's all. I'm just hoping that they replace the word "tricycle with "moped," but then I'll get less results with irrelevant videos that doesn't match with commuting with tricycles.
Other than that, it's pretty fun watching commuters traveling through roads with mopeds.
