Advantages of a Scooter Over a Car

By: Matt Robison

Choosing a scooter can have several advantages if your always on the go. If you are a student, or have a job that carries you away from home daily you know with the prices of automobiles today as well as gas prices constantly shooting up, many are looking for alternatives to driving their own cars.

While taxis and buses are convenient they can also become quite costly. If you have to take a taxi everywhere it's definitely going to add up overtime. And as far as buses go you are subject to the whims of the bus schedule. Who wants to sit for 2 hours at a bus stopping waiting for a ride from to go home?

This is why scooters can be a great addition to any ones life. They are there when you need to go somewhere, not to mention they are much cheaper on gas. You could go much farther and longer on a tank of gas than you could with a car.

There are scooters to accommodate most sizes and requirements needed to ride safely. By using your scooter for most of travel you will have no need to spend a lot at the pumps or worry about insuring your scooter. There is no requirements for you to provide insurance or special licenses to operate one.

One the downside if you unfortunately do have an accident this means that you will have to pay out of pocket for any bodily images or damage to the scooter. Of course if you drive safely and are careful it will lessen your chances of actually being in an accident. I would suggest taking safety precautions just as you would when riding a motorcycle or four wheeler. Wear a a helmet and even knee pads or arm pads if you like.

Ultimately there are pros and cons to everything but if you are someone who's on a budget but still need to get around often then its definitely worth getting a scooter.

Just a quick summary of the pros for purchasing one. It not only saves you money on gas and thousands of dollars if you where to purchase a vehicle, but also you have no requirements for a special licenses, registration, or costly insurance. As you know now scooters are not only convenient and a huge money saver but they are also fun to drive. So how can you go wrong from purchasing a scooter?
