Kerry Business Potentially Investing In Adult Electric Scooters
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.
