Practicing the Urban Scooter!

Sit back, enjoy the sun, watch the street, the traffic, the city in motion. And you will see what you have never seen before: Scooters, rollerblades, skateboards. So many discreet means of transport in the city and invisible in official statistics.

Scooters are absent from surveys on urban mobility . In town, the fleeting vision of an adult perched on a scooter remains rare. However, it is inevitable: The Scooter takes its place as a means of urban transport.

“Active modes” , these individual means of transport having the human body as their motor, are limited to walking and cycling. And yet, when we pay a little attention, we notice in the overall flow of traffic these modes of transport, or rather of acceleration, which until then went unnoticed. Among the Toddlers, we observe a lot of children, girls and boys mixed together, who slip away after school, but, curiously, very few teenagers. And occasionally an adult.

By scooter, we move on average 2 to 3 times faster than on foot in the city center. There is an average speed of about 12 to 20 km/h. Faster than a car in rush hour, you can move around nimbly and thus avoid traffic jams and, above all, no longer waste time parking. Wearing a helmet is recommended on a scooter (as on a bike): "prevention is better than cure", says the proverb!
