I have worked Research for years, I have different clinic location that I have to be at at different time of the week. I have found that taking mu scooter,not only to work in the morning, but in between clinics (the VA and UCLA) has save me a lot of money and time. The parking, gas and traffic jams are virtually eliminated by using my scooter. No parking fees, $6 every 2 weeks for a fill up (I commute from Santa Monica) and no traffic jams going to and from clinics is a huge time saver. With the beautiful sunny So. Cal days, it's very relaxing! I have more than paid for my scooter by the saving I have made using it! Not to mention the relief of stress it gives me!
