Unsolicited Advice: Scooter Cars Must Go
ScootCoupe, we understand that you’re part scooter and part car, and we celebrate your hybrid heritage. We acknowledge that your reversed-tricycle wheelbase is intriguing, that your 80 miles per gallon is amazing, and that your fiberglass body can rock a gelcoat. Here’s the thing, though: You look like a deathtrap. You’re undersized, underpowered and really hard to see. Your chrome roll bars barely peek above the hoods of the big cars on the road, and to you, even a Smart Car falls into that category. We know that tourists too cheap to rent real cars look at you and think, “Let’s drive to Hanauma Bay!” But you have no business mixing it up with traffic. Get off the road!
