Scooter sense

The Press - - Opinion | Letters -

Martin van Bey­nen (Jan 12) got it so right.

I am an old guy well into my Gold Card years but Lime scoot­ers have added an­other way to pre­tend I am still a whole lot younger. I use one when­ever I have an ex­cuse.

Of course I could walk but how much more fun it is to come home from the su­per­mar­ket with my shop­ping in my back­pack at 20+ km/hr down the Pe­tone Es­planade, or Lime into the Bob Scott re­tire­ment fa­cil­ity to visit a friend, or show­ing off to our grand­chil­dren.

Well done to our coun­cil for let­ting these fun ma­chines loose in Lower Hutt.

Of course there will be ac­ci­dents; I haven’t had one yet, but that is part of be­ing alive. Nor­man Wilkins, Lower Hutt
