What Are Alt-Wheels?
– Made for a single rider
– Smaller than bicycles
Electric skateboards, electric scooters, electric unicycles, the Onewheel, the Jyroball.
Alt-Wheels differs from “micromobility.” That’s all in this post.
Electric cars will create a booming market for hacked software and firmware. Prepare for future lawsuits involving the DMCA, just as there were with farm tractors. Additionally, EVs will become a commodity market faster than anyone expects. This is the case with most of the electric skateboard market. Any EV maker not pouring bet-the-company resources into electric motors will be eaten by China.

Lime’s rider-analysis data shows, however, that with each added step that a user has to walk to find a scooter, the less likely riders will choose a scooter as an alternative to a taxi.
Simple solution: Take away car parking near intersections. Parked vehicles block pedestrians from seeing oncoming traffic and block the view of drivers. Make the free space Alt-Wheels parking.
If there are pedestrians — especially if they are children or the elderly — give way. If there are crowded areas, instead of stubbornly choosing to ride, just walk your device.
Make sure to ring your bell before you overtake pedestrians so that they can move aside. If they choose not to move aside, adjust by just walking your PMD until you get ahead of them.
Adjusting doesn’t mean that you lose, it means that you are choosing safety. That is exactly what we should do whenever we are using PMDs in general, we should choose safety, first and foremost.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
A large percentage of those admitted had serious injuries; and more than half the PMD riders admitted were injured when they skidded. In the period studied, the hospital also witnessed six fatalities.
This video isn’t something I’d ordinarily include except it demonstrates the muscular motor power of electric unicycles. Watch it conquer Death Hills with ease:
