Some time in the next year, I won't be living at home and will probably have a need to get some kind of personal transportation. Today my bus was freakin' 20 minutes late again so it got me thinking.... (at least 20, I got my dad to drive me to school instead. Cost like 3 dollars just in gas) I will likely be living in a medium city next summer (Reno Nevada). Are "scooters" a good way to get around? They seem like 3 wheeled motorcycles. The ones I've looked at get like 100 miles a gallon. I calculated today that it would cost me 20 cents to get to school AND back if gas was 6 dollars a gallon! What about safety too? I know they're not as safe... but I still think it's worth the risk?
