by Owen Jones

The majority of people who purchase gas powered scooters are concerned about whether a gas powered scooter is street legal in traffic. This is not surprising every car driver has had the misfortune to get stuck behind a slow gas powerd scooter at some time or another and has wished that the scooter would pull over.

The speed of those gas powered scooters was virtually non-existent. However, modern gas powered scooters can stay with the traffic. It may not be street legal to take a gas powerd scooter or any scooter on the highway, but they do have the capability to travel at high speeds, although the speed necessary to keep up with the flow of motorway traffic may overwhelm a gas powered scooter.

Surely just the most enthusiastic of entomologists and the most fervent followers of Buddha can honestly say that they like mosquitoes. The rest of us in the world loathe them. The word ‘mosquito’ comes from either the Spanish or the Portuguese and means ‘little fly’. They live in most countries all over the world and are or have been to blame for spreading a range of diseases throughout history.

Malaria is the sickness most usually connected with mosquitoes and at one time malaria was widespread in Europe.
