Scooters (mopeds) might be a good solution for those who don’t drive often or far. After all, they get great gas mileage. We talk about some of the pros and cons of scooters, including some scary crash stats and we learn about CCs. Plus, we share our lively conversation with Raleigh resident Gretchen Saussy, a longtime scooter owner.
