I’ve been using ebikes for years. They work through the Winter, and have cost me about $5/year to power them, in electricity costs. Yes, per YEAR.
If someone has concerns about ebikes, I hope they’d speak with people who use them to learn of the many benefits.
It’s important for everyone to be courteous, and that includes drivers (who are deadly when they fail to comply with the law), and people who walk, as well as people in wheel chairs, on One Wheels, or any other form of active transportation.
My ebike helps me not over-exert myself while biking. I’ve died previously from biking too hard, and had a cardiac arrest. I’m less likely to have that problem again if I can have electric assistance like people get from powered wheel chairs.
Will municipal, and provincial governments legislate away our future transportation technology before it gets popular here?
