Can I use a scooter to commute to work?
Is it a good idea to commute to work on a scooter?
Scooters have many advantages over cars and SUVs, but should they be used to commute to work?
Two of the main advantages of scooters over regular-sized vehicles is fuel economy and ease of parking or storage. Using a scooter can also save if you normally pay tolls with a car or SUV.
In addition to those gains, using a scooter to commute can also add some flexibility for one-vehicle families. Using a scooter can free up the other vehicle for a fraction of the cost that it costs to own and operate a second vehicle.
People who commute on a scooter also report some mental benefits. Riding a scooter to and from work may help relieve some stress. Most people who use scooters ride the ride invigorating and the traffic less restrictive.
