Should I change to this mode of transport?

February 21, 2010 at 4:57 pm 14 comments

This scooter is a cool new gift that my brother brought for me from Hong Kong. If I use it to go to work, it will not only be environmentally friendly, I might actually become more fit. What do you think? Is that a realistic thought? Or should I just ride around on it in the house, outside in the compound and perhaps in the office or in the park?

What would stop me from using it instead of the car I presently drive? Well, what about the absence of cycle lanes and pavements? What about the heat and the pollution? The distance? The traffic? And I am sure if I would distract so many people that it would end up causing accidents. So I guess I won’t use this as my primary mode of travel within the city. 🙂

    So, if this is what he got you after you told him not to get you anything, does that mean if you HAD asked him to get you something he’d get you…a car? Or a bi-plane?! 😀

    I think if i may say, it is an early start of the reality, where we Pakistani cold set the trend and save dollars in oiled economy!

    Roads are built for cars, not for people! Pavements and cozy corners are made for people. I had the privilege of staying in UK for my studies, in London, daily i was motivated to walk, why? Because the surrounding is appealing positive atmosphere every corner of UK is taken care for, just used simple things. They are just like us but with using resources more close to their real needs. London got 4+ million cars circling around roads every day. They have divided the roads into smarter ways to drive by creating zones, and yes there are no driving zones, if someone has walked through Covent garden’s and west end in London it’s all cozy. We need to work on those lines. As i believe there are initiators and there are doers all are here just need the courage to do it with no challenges.

    Sure, this would be wonderful.

    I stoutly support Scottie’s or bikes for commuting short distances. It’s green and secondly it can resolve lot of health issues, no more worries for calories 🙂

    My university campus is being shifted quite near to my house. It would be a fatigue to walk to the spot though, but would also be painful to pay the same transportation fee to a place thats visible from my terrace even. So I was thinking on lines to snatch my younger bro’s scooty and ride the way through…

    But just because I’m too bad to entertain all the people around, I dropped this idea. As I know once we girls initiate this trend, the number of comments we’d receive every day on road would exceed the number of comments you receive on your blog 🙂
