Electric Scooters and Coronavirus

When you use an electric scooter you won’t be sitting or standing close to other people. This means you can potentially abide by social distancing guidelines. When you practice social distancing you’re more likely to stay well.  

However, you should always make sure that you travel safely. Don’t move to the side of the pavement or the road if it is not safe to do so. It’s natural that you’ll want to avoid other people right now but you also need to keep yourself safe. 

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint 

Electric scooters are the ideal way to travel if you’re concerned about the environment. This is because when they’re compared to a car they reduce your CO2 emissions. This means that you can travel greener every day. You will keep the air in your town or city a little cleaner and you won’t need to keep the engine running if you get stuck at traffic lights. 

While you still need to charge your electric scooter the energy you save will soon mount up. This means you can feel good about charging your scooter when you’re (safely) zooming down the road. 

Speeding up Your Travel Time 

Let’s imagine that you walk to work everyday and it takes you 20 minutes to get there. If you were to travel by electric scooter instead you could half your travelling time. This is ideal if you are always in a rush or you simply want to get to the office sooner. 

Now let’s imagine that you drive your car to work everyday and it takes you 40 minutes to get there. However, 20 of those minutes are spent in traffic. This is where an electric scooter can come in handy. You won’t have to wait at the traffic lights any more which means you’ll get to work earlier, or you can leave the house a little later. 

Electric scooters are great at helping to speed up your travel time. They can knock minutes off your daily commute while making it a lot more fun. 

A Sense of Freedom 

Many people love to ride motorbikes because they give them a sense of freedom. The same can be said for an electric scooter. However, electric scooters aren’t as expensive and while they don’t travel quite as fast they can give you a sense of freedom. 

You can travel to work, to the shops, to a friend’s house, to school, college, or university and feel more free. You won’t have to work with the local bus or train timetables. You won’t have to rely on someone else to give you a lift. You can simply hop on your electric scooter and enjoy having a little more freedom. 

They Can Be Stored Safely 

Electric scooters can be stored safely as they don’t take up much room. This is particularly the case for those scooters that can be folded. A folded scooter can be carried upstairs or taken in a lift. You can also store your new electric scooter under your desk so it’s out the way. 

Why not change the way you travel to work and use an electric scooter to get you there? It will make a huge difference to your daily travel.
