One morning you wake up and everywhere you look there are scooters. They are on the corner, laying down on neighbor’s lawns, blocking sidewalks, etc. And to think just ‘yesterday’ they were used as toys for kids!With the scooters came laws which no one seems to be observing such as only 1 person on a scooter at a time, have to be over 18 to use one, not to be used in the streets, etc.Now these are different than the ones we had to propel with one foot pushing us along and go a bit faster.They aren’t really inexpensive but it does cut down on car traffic–or does it?As with anything ‘new’ there are groups for and against it–looking forward to seeing who ‘wins’.
