Sit in the cafe, enjoy the sun, watch the street, the traffic, the city in motion. And you'll see what you've never seen before: Scooters, rollerblades, skateboards. So many means of transport discreet in the city and invisible in the official statistics.
The "active modes", these means of individual displacement driven by the human body, are limited to walking and cycling. And yet, when we take a little attention, we notice in the global flow of traffic these modes of transport, or rather acceleration, which previously went unnoticed. Among the Trottineurs, we observe many children : girls and boys who kick to come back to school but, curiously, very few adolescents. And from time to time an adult.
In Scooter, we move on average 2 to 3 times faster than walking in the city center. There is an average speed of about 12 to 20 km / h. Faster than a car in rush hour, you can move nimbly and avoid traffic jams and especially not waste time parking. Wearing a helmet is recommended on a scooter.
