    I'd be keen for her to have a Brompton or a Bike Friday, but she's not me.
    Bromptons are fantastic - I have an M6 - which hardly gets used any more.

    What is, or isn't, a motor vehicle is defined by legislation. And common sense therefore has nothing to do with it. By a Gazette notice electric scooters are declared not to be motor vehicles.

    For the legals refer to https://www.nzta.govt.nz/vehicles/ve...ered-vehicles/ and follow the various links.

    Yes, quite a few people are using the same approach at the University. $1000 for a hunting licence, but with all the contractors on site there are very few parks. The streets outside are two hour, and it's quite a long way to get to an all day area.

    Took one for a hoon into town on Sunday morning, other than a lack of suspension trying to rattle the fillings out of your teeth it seems like a very effective way of getting from A to B, particularly the park it where you're finished with it aspect.

    Surprisingly, if you're courteous about how you operate the thing you get smiles from the other people you're sharing the road or footpath with, so I guess the simple answer (which applies to every mode of transport) is don't be a dick and the world will be a happy place.

    Walked past a Lime scooter yesterday with the rear brake cable disconnected.

    Think I'll pass until they sort their shit out.
