Ride a Scooter, Save the World
'Scooters, in fact, could save the world. You don't like the noise pollution from all those souped-up motorcycles tearing through L.A.? My scooter purrs like a kitten. You're worried about what's going to happen on the weekend of July 16-17, when a key section of the 405 Freeway is going to be closed for reconstruction and the autopocalypse is expected to hit the Westside? If you had a scooter, you could zip between all those frozen cars. Parking problems? For you, maybe; not for us scooterists. You can leave your scooter at a bike rack, or on the sidewalk, or anywhere.'
