Electric motorcycles and scooters are great... they use no gasoline, they don't pollute, and they run quite silently. And that can be a problem. With pedestrians used to traffic that makes noise, even the most quiet car makes a lot of noise when driving, an electric motorcycle or scooter can become dangerous. Pedestrians can walk onto the road thinking there is no traffic, cyclists can get hurt when an electric vehicle overtakes them, etc.
Authorities all over the world have been contemplating laws that will ensure that an electric vehicle makes some noise. But their search is over. Domino's Pizza in The Netherlands has come up with the best solution. Their electric pizza delivery scooters criss-cross the Dutch cities delivering piping hot pizzas, and Domino decided to not only make them safer for the rest of the traffic, but also do a bit of advertising at the same time.
If you look, and listen, to the video below, you'll hear the electric scooter riding through traffic, while the scooter "talks" to the cyclists and pedestrians. What it is saying is "Domino's Domino's Domino's Yummy Yummy Yummy Domino's Domino's Domino's Domino Pizzas".
So this way the traffic is safe, AND they advertise their pizzas at the same time. I just wouldn't want to be one of their delivery boys; having to hear the recording the whole time will make me want to ride into one of the many canals of Amsterdam.
