Being the “scooter guy” on staff means this editor takes a lot of flak for sticking up for the much-maligned two-wheeled cousin of the motorcycle. Hopefully this proves that scooters are not wholly unsafe for staying ahead of traffic. Yes, there are slower scooters than the Forza and much faster cars than a Civic, so this is not representative of EVERY single stoplight interaction. Even fast scooters are still slower than average motorcycles (click the link below to see our City Bike Shootout), but cars, in large part, are even slower. Fear not, scooter brethren! Ride proudly on!
