Time to get rid of Cars and Hop On Hoverboards
There is no dispute that vehicles are polluting our environment and forcing us to adapt to the transport system in our daily routine matters. To the very high extent, we're using vehicles for our every journey whether it's long or short. We fall into this trap that through this we save our time. No doubt, it saves time but at the cost of health and money. So, it’s time to ditch your normal and boring cars and get back to cycling or hop on board. There are countless benefits of riding a bicycle which includes both health and wealth, so in this insight, we are going to focus on this specific issue.
But there’s a catch with the bicycles as they are quite slow and requires a lot of effort. So it’s better to go for the system which is more practical, easy to use in day to day life and saves our time too.
So, without getting into other details, let’s start our discussion of the advantages of Electric Skateboarding.
Let's check out some of the advantages of electric skateboards which will certainly convince you to get rid of your fueled car.
1. Time and Traffic: As per the research made by the US Department of Transportation, more than 85 percent of American's spends an average of 300 hours on the road while driving.
2. Cost: Traveling is very expensive if you take your own vehicle to the drive. However according to this study, an average American spends $2600 per year on a vehicle including fuel, wear and tear, and some other expenses. So, if you hop on the electric skateboard, which is much cheaper and costs only once. As per the Reviews Crush you can get a good quality skateboard in as less as $50 and as high as $1000. In this way, you would probably save an estimate of $2600 per year on gasoline alone.
3. Bicycle or Skateboards: If you go for the bike then it would require some of your energy whereas electric skateboards are a lot more fun than your bicycle ride as they are quite fast. The average speed of electric skateboard is 15 to 26 mph.
4. Speed: If you think buses or trains move much faster in the city areas then have a look at this study of American Public Transportation Association in which they provided the facts related to speed. As per them, the average speed of rail transit is not more than 28km/h and the average speed of bus transit is only 20km/h.
5. Everyone Is Doing It: According to a study conducted by Parks and Recreation there are almost 16 million skateboarders in the USA and the trends are just growing and growing with the new electric skateboards on the shelves.
Hope this informational piece of writing on advantages of electric skateboards convinced you to get rid of the car and get on it quickly.

But when "sacred cow" projects begin to go wrong, that privilege and protection makes fixing them even more difficult. From William E.
