  End of the road for cars?
Updated 07 December 2001, 07.59

Cassandra, 15 has researched the transport of the future. Here's what she found out.

Cars have always been the most convenient and comfortable form of transport for us but soon this may change.

Instead roads will be bustling with Segway 'Super Scooters'!

Fact File
Super-scooter facts
No lessons required
They run on a battery
Using one for 24 hours would only spend 3 pence worth of electricity
They're environment friendly
Could mean the end of traffic jams!

These scooters are not only fume free and therefore better for the environment but they are also cheaper and more convenient.

Also they do not use fuels such as oil, which is steadily running out.

However, Segway scooters do not have all the conveniences of cars.

Cars allow you to sit down and rest. Cars also have roofs to protect you from getting wet in the rain.

No family trips

Most importantly cars can carry several people at a time, whereas, the Segway scooter is designed for transporting one person so it is not ideal for families.

Perhaps scooters are the answer to pollution and the everyday occurrence of traffic jams.

But we as the future generation, will be the ones who decide whether or not to make these hi-tech scooters the replacement of cars.
