After visiting our historic Southampton town center this weekend, I had the horror and misfortune of witnessing the latest craze terrorizing our streets.
I am of course talking about electric scooters.
There were three of them in a row, hurtling down the main street without worrying about the safety of others.
Fearing for my life, I had to quickly move away from them or risk coming into close contact with these ASBOs on wheels.
In my day you had two options, drive or cycle and if you couldn’t do either you had to walk and you were happy with it.
It looks like these electric scooters are now the escape vehicle of choice for hooded thugs.
As if that weren’t enough, I found out that companies actually leave these scooters on street corners for anyone to “rent” them.
He doesn’t give a damn about the foundations that work hard and hold this country together.
Frankly I don’t like it at all and as a taxpayer I think scooters should be banned with immediate effect.
We must act now or risk losing even more of our streets and public roads to these thugs.
