Electric scooters: Marvel or menace?
If they haven't taken over your city yet, they probably will
Paris, Berlin, Dallas, Vienna, Seoul, Mexico City, Lisbon, Madrid, San Diego, Singapore, and Beijing are just a few of the cities that have become home to shared electric scooters in the last year, taking their transport systems for a spin.
These scooters are generally "dockless," meaning they don’t have a fixed home location, and are dropped off and picked up from random locations in the area. They’re convenient, eco-friendly, and have a long list of benefits, but they’re also seen as a terror in many urban areas.
Unsure of where you stand on this new form of micro-transport? Check out this gallery to see the pros and cons, and decide whether you should start riding one yourself.
