As you are already aware, transportation is one of the largest sources of air pollution in the world. This air pollution carries some critical risks for both – environment and human health. That is why it is significant that we now focus on using electric scooters and cars instead of the fuel-driven conventional vehicles because electric scooters and cars don’t emit air pollutants.
YObykes are environment-friendly electric scooters unlike the conventional scooters that generate air pollution throughout their life span – during their manufacturing, fueling, vehicle operation and disposal. The gases liberated during these procedures, are very dangerous to Mother Nature as well as human health.
Let’s have a quick look at key air pollutants liberated by petrol vehicles:
In the presence of sunlight, these pollutants react with Nitrogen Oxides to form the ground level Ozone which is a primary element in smog. Though it is beneficial to upper atmosphere, it irritates our respiratory system at the ground level. It causes cough, cold and also, reduces the lung capacity.
Particulate Matter (PM)
These are the particles of soot and metals which are fine particles and pose the most serious threat to human health because they can penetrate deep into the lungs. Particulate Matter is a primary kind of pollution which spreads directly.
These pollutants reduce the immunity of human body to fight against respiratory infections such as influenza and pneumonia. They also cause lung irritation and various other respiratory disorders. Electric scooters don’t produce such gases.
Carbon Monoxide (CO)
This colorless and odorless poisonous gas is formed by the combustion of fossil petroleum fuels that are also primarily emitted from cars, scooters, motorcycles, trucks, etc. When CO is inhaled, it blocks the Oxygen from heart, brain and other vital organs. Infants, fetuses and new born children are more likely to have chronic illness due to this gas.
Conventional automobiles also generate Greenhouse gases such as Carbon Dioxide which causes climate change that is ultimately going to harm humans and other living organisms.
The electric scooters developed by YObykes are smart and don’t emit any of the above gases that are dangerous for us and the environment.
So don’t you think you should now opt for an electric scooter? Book a test ride now!
