Where do people stand on the rise and rise of the electric scooter?  The team at Hyperion have been waiting with baited breath for electric Vespa, but this looks cool, and good performance for urban areas.  I have safety concerns over the rise of electric scooters (like the kids ones) that are driven on pavements. I also read of the rise of injuries and deaths on electric bikes and scooters. Perhaps we need a special training course of license, but that would be easy to evade I guess. Electric bikes and scooters bring many benefits, not just environmental (yes, I know we need to improve battery recycling and mining conditions etc). My son has Muscular Dystrophy, and his electric bike gives him so much freedom. Tempted myself.....
