A new survey has revealed that scooter cities are the safest in the world.
More than 80 per cent of scooter liveers surveyed in eight cities said they were willing to ride on public transport if it meant that other people didn’t have to drive their own scooters.
The survey was commissioned by scooter brand BajaBaja, which was founded by two brothers, Michael and Kevin.
It found that the average life expectancy for a scooter in the United States was 75.5 years, which is nearly half the average lifespan of a typical motorcyclist.
The highest life expectancy in the US was in Los Angeles, which has a life expectancy of 80.2 years, with the highest for bikes at 85.9.
The most scooters to live in were the UK, with 16 per cent, followed by New York, with 13.7 per cent.
The scooter’s reputation has also improved in recent years, especially among younger people.
The average life span for a typical British teenager was just over 76.8 years, according to data from the Office for National Statistics, compared with 78.9 for a similar age group in 2014.
The average life in the UK is now almost five years longer than the US average.
