Check Out The Maneuverability And Convenience Of Gas Scooters
Gas scooters have become very popular in recent years with a variety of people, for a lot of reasons. They are compact and easily maneuverable in congested city settings. Because they are basically maintenance free, gas scooters have become a staple in college life.
Students use them for getting from class to class or even for short trips. The very first thing you should check when thinking of purchasing a gas scooter is the law in your state and also double check with local law enforcement. The state may not have a problem with gas scooters, but local government may have ordinances in place stating when and where you can use the scooters. You may run into sticky stops because they are not quite a vehicle, but are not quite a bicycle, either.
The laws will also vary from state to state, so make sure you completely check all the states you will be scooting in. Some places will say that scooters have to obey the same traffic laws as cars, but are classified as a variant of bicycles. Massachusetts's law says that a rider must have at least a learner's permit, as well as wear a helmet and observe traffic laws.
However, it doesn't need to be registered because the DMV classifies it the same as a skateboard. If you are going to use the gas scooter, make sure it can keep up with traffic. You should be able to go at least the minimum speed so as to not cause a hazard. You should get between fifty and seventy miles per gallon.
Besides the great gas mileage, these scooters are recommended more than electric scooters for long distance errands or 'running around' town. The batteries in electric scooters may run out, leaving you stranded. Also, gas scooters are better equipped to be used in traffic. Keep in mind that, when riding a scooter, they are for use by one rider at a time. Putting an extra body on may prove unsafe.
Also, be sure to wear a helmet and follow the local traffic laws. Treating the scooter as a motorcycle is a good rule of thumb. In fact, these scooters are so similar to motorcycles, that The Motorcycle Safety Foundation has started offering courses in safety for gas scooter riders. The main thing that riders of both vehicles have to watch out for is people driving traditional cars, trucks and SUVs. They are not used to watching for scooters or motorcycles.
This is why you must be extra careful if you chose to use this as your mode of transportation on regular roadways. Don't forget, for all the upsides of gas scooters, make sure it is legal for you to drive one in your city, town or state. Make sure you have a helmet if one is required by law and for safety's sake. Summary: Recently, gas scooters have become more popular due to excellent gas mileage, few repairs and affordability.
Just make sure that your state and local governments allow scooters and be sure to follow all safety precautions, including watching out for drivers in cars that may not be looking out for you.
