To say that the development of different transportation vehicles is convenient would be making an understatement. There is a need to find a practical substitute for cars. The reasons being a growing population problem as well as a growing number of vehicles on the street. As populations continue to grow, the problem of how to get around them grows as well, literally. This problem is felt on a higher level in urban areas and big cities, where the exponential growth causes as much a hindrance as it does other secondary issues, such as pollution. The more cars there are, the more carbon gets emitted, compounding the problem even more.

Fortunately, the problem has been identified by those both willing and capable of finding solutions. The investments made have now given us not one, but many solutions, with just as many benefits to using either one of them.
Various electronics devices have been designed that allows users to bypass long traffic lines by moving quickly on sidewalks. These require no mechanical movement from the users, and as a result, they help people who would otherwise have to sit through traffic or walk long distances. The following are some examples of what is offered.
E-Bikes: Electric bikes, or e-bikes, are just one example of an already existing method of transportation that has been adapted as a solution to the transportation problem. They can run at an impressive 15mph, a limit that is fitting, given the balance it provides between speed and safety. A charge is all that’s needed, so fuel costs are completely eliminated when using these, and the cost of purchasing one isn’t as high as you would think. Because their design takes nothing away from that of traditional bikes, and despite their “pedal assist” feature, they offer as much exercise benefits as can be had from an electric device.

E-Scooters: Electric scooters come in many shapes and sizes. Some have seats, some don’t. Some fold while others offer little by way of flexibility. What they all have in common is the ability to offer users a cost-effective and easy to ride solution to vehicles. The great thing about e-scooters is that there are a number of different types to choose from, making it easy to pick one that best suits your particular needs, as well as tastes.
E-Skates: Electric skates differ from the other two examples in that they are slightly less formal. When it comes to convenience, however, there are fewer better options. Their small sizes allow you to easily pick one up after a ride and set it up beside you when you are settled. They offer the same cost benefits that other electric rides do, and with speeds that more or less match that of others, they actually do help you get to where you need to go in no time.
There are other examples of electric devices available and more are sure to be more patented in the future.
Here are some Pros and Cons of using Electric Transport Technology.

There are a number of benefits of using electric transportation vehicles. The following are some crucial points to consider, especially because none of them can be claimed by any car in production today, as you will quickly notice.
Cost: What most people are rightfully concerned with is whether a shift from cars to alternative methods of transportation will cost them. It won’t. Electric devices are inexpensive, and because they run on battery power, there are no fuel costs to factor in.
Convenience: It goes without saying that using these means that traffic isn’t an issue. Apart from that, most electric vehicles are compact and lightweight. This means that parking isn’t an issue either. They are also fairly easy to use, on average, taking away a need for a driver’s license and the like.

Environmentally friendly: Every single electric vehicle offers 0% carbon emissions. This helps contribute to cleaner air and a healthy environment. The fact that they don’t use any fuel means that all the negative effects of sourcing unrenewable energy aren’t a factor either.
There really is only one important point e-vehicles concede when compared to cars; space. Whether it involves carrying an extra passenger, or when looking to carry with you more than just a rucksack, e-vehicles are usually limited. This doesn’t, however, take away from the fact that they are still a solution for those looking to commute on a daily basis.
As time passes, better solutions will be created, until even cars become unrecognizably a part of a more efficient network of transportation vehicles. Where there is a will, there is a way, and quite literally so.
