Try Electric Scooters

RECEIVED Tue., July 18, 2006

Dear Editor,
    For those of you who are looking to lessen your dependence on oil for transportation but find that biking is too impractical, may I recommend investing in an electric scooter? They are free from noise and air pollution and cost about 10 cents of energy to recharge. I just got an EVT-168, which reaches a top speed of 35 mph with a range of 30 to 40 miles, making it perfect for getting around town. Scooters have been a popular means for short-distance transportation in European cities for decades now because of the numerous benefits they hold over cars. Let's support electric transportation and create demand for more advanced electric vehicles in the U.S.
