Did you know that in the past 150 years, we have emmitted more carbon dioxide and created more pollution to the earth comparatived with all the other years since Earth’s existence? Compared with getting a car or using a car, an electric scooter does not produce any harmful emissions and can be recharged with electricity instead of using gasoline.
Doesn’t Take Much Space
Do you sometimes find it frustrating to park your car and pay that extra parking fees? Well with an electric scooter you won’t have to do any of that. You can just carry it with you wherever you go or just leave it locked along the sidewalk. It’s stress and hassle free compared with a car. This is great especially if you happen to live in metro-politan city.
It is Portable
Depending on the scooter you get, you can sometimes even fit it inside your bag. Though the bigger the scooter, the faster it is, new designs of electric scooters have been really picking. Small electric scooters are packing a punch these days with longer battery life and speed.
No Traffic Jams
If you live in a big city, you probably know the dread a traffic jam can induce. Instead of wasting precious time, with an electric scooter you won’t have to get stuck in traffic jam and you have the advantage of navigating through terrains that cars are not allowed to.
If you are going to be buying a car, you will most likely have to spend at least 2-3 grand on a decent car, on top of that insurance, gasoline, repairs, and maintenance can really drain your finances. If you live somewhat close your work place and not commuting any more than 10 miles to your work, electric scooters can be a great replacement.
There is no extra hidden cost that is associated with electric scooters. Besides some electricity bills and repairs here and there, you will be saving a lot of money.
Buying an electric scooter is not just for practical purposes, but also one of value and life ideals. For those of you who are minimalists and don’t necessarily enjoy much clutter in your life, electric scooters offers you the flexibility and the freedom to still remain loyal to your ideals and not succumb to the pressures of society.
I am 25 years old, but I have never owned a car, nor do I plan purchasing one under my name. The overhead costs, the maintenance, and every other hassle that comes with is not worth the time and mental drain.
