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
