Simply Super Scooters Carla Powers finds out why scooters have become one of the most stylish ways of getting around. Quicker than walking, safer than a motorbike and more glamorous than a car, the scooter has become a young person’s ‘must –have’ possession. The history of the scooter has its ups and downs. When the first Italian-designed scooters appeared in 1946, they caused a sensation.Teenagers adored them. They were stylish, comfortable and much cheaper than cars. In the 1960s in Britain, ‘Mods’ thought scooters were much more fashionable than the motorbikes of their rivals, ‘Rockers’.In the 1980s, in the USA, the government wanted to control pollution and banned the use of two-stroke motors. Consequently, sales of scooters fell dramatically. However, today’s modern engines are much better for the environment and scooters have become fashionable again. With a wide selection of colours and accessories available, nine out of ten teenagers think that scooters are the coolest means of transport around.
