Default Electric scooters 'would beat cars on short journeys and help cutcongestion in UK's gridlocked cities'

New research has found e-scooters would beat cars on most journeys in
gridlocked UK cities.

Something else on the roads for grumpy old men to whinge about.

There follows a serious question which you (and the "researchers") might
not be able to answer.

What is a "gridlocked UK city"?

Please be as precise as possible in your answer. Try not to be evasive.

As far as one can reasonably tell, the vehicles whose praises you sing
are used almost exclusively *by* (grumpy?) old men and women.

At least, that is so in the UK, whether or not in "gridlocked cities"
(whatever they may be).

In certain overseas territories (well, one in particular), they seem to
be used by anyone whose fancy it takes.

But please... don't forget to tell us what a gridlocked city actually is.

Bicycles already beat cars on city commutes by a larger margin than e-bikes as they can go faster than 15mph.

I thought they were limited to 15mph?

Are the 28mph ones street legal without a driving licence?

walking will beat cars if there is actual gridlock, as would a pogo
stick, or stilts.

Also, when the roads are gridlocked in London, the bike lanes would

not be.

Have you thought up a definition for "gridlocked UK cities" yet?
