The word is starting to get around that electric scooters are now a legit form of transport. Here in Ireland just yesterday one of the main Irish newspapers the Irish Times had a half page article on the benefits of using an electric scooter. This is great press for the electric scooter industry and it also covered the topic of electric bikes also known as ebikes as they have being getting a lot of press recently also. This is because they are now popping up in major cities around the world as a form of bike rental rather than using traditional bikes.
This is the biggest factor when deciding whether an electric scooter is for you. Most adult electric scooters have a range of between 20 – 30kms so if you live near enough to your work place then an adult electric scooter could be a legit way to save a fortune. Think about how much you spend on fuel for your car as well as insurance and NCT? Or how much you pay to use your leap card each week. If you can replace these forms of transport with an adult electric scooter then surely it is a wise investment.
For those of you who are keen to help save the environment then this is a great direct way to cut down on your own emissions. Instead of driving to work or the shops you can now use your electric scooter which of your emit no emissions. This too can be said if you are a user of the bus or train or even use taxis to get around. If a large percentage of people were to use an electric scooter instead of using other forms of transportation then think of the impact on your local city?
If a percentage of people move to electric scooters instead of using the forms of transport mentioned above then think of the impact on our roads? We could take a huge amount of people off of our roads even in the next year but encouraging people to move to electric scooters. This is a legit option for our government and something that we hope will be looked at as a serious short term solution.
So these are 3 great reasons for you to at least consider using the electric scooter as a form of transport. As mentioned above the article in the Irish Times mentioned www.escooterstore.ie as a leading retailer of these scooters and somewhere you can get more information.
