Are you tired of traffic? Bored of being behind the wheel in traffic jams? Transform your transportation with a scooter.

You might imagine that scooters are only for kids or hipsters, but the truth is that the adult scooter is becoming a more and more sensible alternative to the car. Here are just some of the reasons why.

Cut through the traffic

We touched on it above, and it’s a good point – no one ever really gets used to traffic jams, and they can easily take half an hour or so out of your day. The constant stop-start stress of traditional urban vehicle transit can be a thing of the past when you invest in an adult scooter.

Less hassle than a bicycle or motorcycle

If you’re considering switching from car transport, you have a few alternatives to choose from, including bicycles and mopeds. Scooters are much less expensive and much less hassle than motorbikes and mopeds. They also require no maintenance. Scooters also make more sense than bicycles if you’re travelling a relatively short distance that you might otherwise walk. Bicycles are often best-suited to medium-length journeys.

Get a good workout... without the sweat

Many of us would love to switch to a form of commuting that gets our heart beating, but may fear the downside of being left sweaty and in need of a change of clothes once we get to work. Scooter ownership gives you many of the same exercise benefits as walking or running, while also leaving you in a good condition to get straight on with your work in the office.

Eliminate parking time

Sometimes it takes longer to find a parking space than it did to make the journey. Whereas scooters can be folded up and stored or carried around. No more worrying about parking spaces, charges or unexpected fines.

Combines perfectly with public transport

Maybe you don’t take public transport because of long walks either side of your journey. A scooter changes everything because you can travel about two to three times faster than walking. And because they only weigh about 3-5kg, you can easily folded it up and carry it onto public transportation, for integrated commuting.

Much cheaper than a car

This may seem like an obvious point, but it’s easy to forget just how much car ownership costs you over a year. The MOT, insurance, fuel and AA membership are just some of the expenses that you can say goodbye to when you swap your car for a scooter.

Do your bit for the environment

Most of us are aware of the toxic impact that our everyday activities are having on the only planet we’ve got. Reduce your environmental footprint by only leaving scooter footprints behind you, instead of a trail of fumes. With none of the harmful gases emitted that characterise cars, and hardly any noise generated either, an adult scooter is one of the greenest methods of transport around.

So here are just some of the reasons an adult scooter can be an amazing alternative to your car. What are you waiting for? If you’re on the lookout for a mode of transport that makes sense in the 21st century, the scooter is for you.
