It annoys me they are called that too, but then every name annoys me nowadays.

Why do products have to be named with a lowercase 'i'? Why are products named random letters and numbers instead of something cool like Mustang. How did a minivan get the name "Town and Country"? Facebook?

I'm a big fan of folding electric kick scooters for last mile commuters. Smaller to pick up and carry at the destination. Ebikes and scooters will be the salvation of personal transportation for the future.

The hated electric kick scooter. The good news is they have bumped bicycles up to second most hated road user.

From the article:
"Those worried about climate change, oil dependency, and noise pollution should know that micro-mobility poses a potential solution to all these problems. I believe the bicycle is a miraculous invention that can help transform our cities."

I'm not sure if physics would be in the rider's favor if a panic stop was required at 25MPH... I think I'd rather have an electric scooter.

Sounds like a bike could also be a good option for your wife.
