vectrix police scooterThe Associated Press reported last week that New York City's police department is testing out a new electric scooter called the "Vectrix" to replace their fleet of gas-powered motorcycles.

The report says that the City's finest feel guilty about their heavy footprint on the environment, and are interested in giving up some range to answer the call of Al Gore...
The Vectrix can only travel 40 to 60 miles per charge, but police officials said they may be willing to sacrifice some range for zero emissions.
Well, not quite zero emissions. The production of electricity still requires the burning of coal and diesel.

Interestingly, the reports goes on to say that electric scooters are ultra-quiet, offering cops the element of surprise.

If New York City really wants to cut down on its use of fossil fuels, why don't they just go with more horses? Seems like mounted police have a much longer range than electric scooters.
