There are two universal truths as to why today's traffic is in such bad shape. First one: everyone and their cat has a car nowadays, and the second one – people suck at driving cars. (Jury is still out on cat driving skills.)
Driving to and from work has become something of an unavoidable terror, as you already know that you'll lose at least an hour every day getting stuck in traffic because bad things happen to good people.
However, thanks to the marvels of modern technology, including cheaper batteries and some new and powerful electric motors, we're seeing a renaissance in battery-powered vehicles, including RC cars, drones and other toys, but also including bicycles, scooters and even skateboards. We now have an entire range of different vehicles we can use not only to have fun, but to commute without having to lose an hour in traffic.
Electric scooters are one of such devices – they’re light, take up very little space, offer solid speeds and range. And if you use them to go to work, you don’t have to worry about coming sweaty to work, as the electric scooter will do all the walking for you.
Here are some of the best electric scooters for adults (and perhaps a couple electric scooters for kids) that you can find on the market today. At the moment, we haven't found an electric scooter that's appropriate for cats, but we'll keep looking.
