Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I am thinking of getting a scooter for getting around DC (think vespa), and I’d like to ask your readers for any feedback or advice on having one in DC.

I currently use a bicycle to get around, so I have some “street smarts,” but my commute just got a little longer (and a little more up-hill), so I am thinking of switching it up. I am looking for some pros/cons/any words from the wise about scooters in the District.


We’ve had some general advice here and a discussion on where they should be locked up – do you guys have any other general advice?
