Electric scooters for adults have been popping up on city streets all over the world since 2017 and it seems that everyone is getting on board on this modern craze. Despite still not being allowed on the roads of Ireland or the UK sales have been increasing here in recent months and there is no sign of that stopping. UK adult electric scooter store www.adultelectricscooters.co.uk have reported an increase of 10% since June 2020 in adult electric scooter sales.
Not be be mistake with kids scooters these are no toy and have quite a bit of power in their electric engines. Reaching speeds of over 15 miles per hour they can be quite dangerous and precautions should be taken when riding. Despite their popularity they are not allowed on UK roads even though other countries in Europe have rushed through legislation in order to cater for electric scooter riders.
The argument against the scooters is that they are not road worthy but they are actually faster than a lot of bikes and could be used in cycle lanes as seen in cities like Germany and Holland. Holland is traditionally a big cycling nation and are famous of thousands of people riding around on bikes each day. This means that they already have many cycle lanes which can help cater to electric scooter riders.
Although bikes are quite dangerous yet have been around for hundreds of years so are generally accepted on the roads even though this frustrates many. Now local businesses are getting in on the market with many bike shops and other small retailers trying to get a slice of the electric scooter pie. Naturally these are quit expensive scooters so there is a big market here which came out of nowhere in the last few years. Whatever your views on the matter electric scooters are here to stay whether people like it or not.
This is just a quick post to note for those who are interested that you can now rent an electric scooter and scoot around Kerry’s most beautiful sites. Electric scooters have come on to the scene around Ireland in the last year and popular tourists areas such as the Aran islands, Dublin City and other popular spots are now offering electric scooter rental. This means that tourists can come and rent electric scooters and scoot around the city. Much like you can do bike tours in most cities however with the electric scooters you don’t have to do any of the work.
Leading the way is a company called escooters Ireland who offer electric scooters in Ireland to buy and rent and they are much cheaper than one might first think. Starting at just €349.00 to buy they are extremely affordable for what they are and they were almost double that price not just a year ago. Now at least you can rent one and try it out before buying.
Each year there are thousands of tourists both domestic and foreign who come to visit the beautiful landscapes and towns of Kerry. This is especially good news for people who are not able to use bikes due to health, age and other disabilities so it really opens up a lot of doors for those sorts of people. One thing to be careful of if you do buy the electric scooters is to use safety equipment such as a helmet and knee and elbow pads. These electric scooters can get up to quite a speed and many go as fast as 25kms per hour so it is not joke if something does happen such as a collision.
As always we would love to hear your feedback on such things :). Thanks!.
