Electric bicycles are not only a fun recreational toy, they are also an optimal form of energy efficient personal transportation.
Benefits of eBikes as transit:
They're smaller and safer
Less physical roadway space
Most roadway fatalities involve an automobile
Significantly less costly
More fuel efficient
Lower public cost to maintain roads
Zero emissions = reduced pollution
Active transit is fun and good for society
Physical, mental and emotional health
Let's help flip modern transportation dilemmas by reducing our abuse of the automobile. Together, we can collectively develop more efficient human-scale transit systems built around active mobility and human assisted light electric vehicles (LEVs).
Dilemmas caused by automobile abuse;
Road rage and stress
Accidental death fatalities
Costly fuel consumption
Public cost to build and maintain roads
Personal cost of ownership reduces quality of life
Damaging our environment
Depletion of non-renewable fossil fuels
Waste of production materials; water and soil pollution
Air pollution, co2 emissions, destruction of the ozone layer
Unhealthy disconnection from community
Time lost in traffic could be used for exercise
Obesity and cardiovascular disease due to inactivity
Cancer, asthma and bronchitis caused by air pollution
