According to WILX News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, the death of a young woman on a moped at Michigan State University last year is putting more attention on some safety issues.

East Lansing Police say it's becoming more important with more people riding them around the city.

Police encourage moped drivers to wear a helmet, even if they are older than 19 and to take their head phones off.

In the last 20 years, police have seen a lot more mopeds in town because they are an easy way to get around town.

To keep mopeds off sidewalks and bike lanes, MSU is adding more designated moped parking on campus.

For the upcoming school year, moped drivers are required to register and pay for a permit to park in the designated moped parking.
