Electric scoots were everywhere in China last year, and must be more common now, since the law that mandated them was expanding to all new scoots and small motorbikes, IIRC. That was a good move. I remember 10 years ago that the scoots were some of the biggest air quality polluters. But now China has so many cars, the air is worse, anyway.

BTW, something like only 10% of Chinese licensed drivers have had their license for more than 3 years.

And traffic in Beijing was no better than LA. At times, I felt like I WAS in LA.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
