Buy or rent e-scooters?
E-scooters have become much loved and loathed by many people in recent times. The year 2019 brought a new lease of life to the technology with the much-anticipated launch of Lime electric scooters and an incredible growth spurt of private purchases from local retailers around the country.
Although it is likely that the Corona virus pandemic will increase demand due to social distancing requirements and health concerns, many citizens and residents of the UK still consider electric scooters to be a problem domain rather than a solution.
While government regulations remain incoherent at best, a lot of people believe e-scooters are a scourge and negative influence in many cities across the country. To this end, this article lays out a comprehensive list of valid concerns and potential citizen-driven solutions that might minimise the technology’s negative aspects and maximise its many obvious benefits.
