Living

But this is not only a waste of electricity and not friendly to the environment. Also, there are a lot of potential dangers. People will leave their children or pets in sealed cars. Then, something unlucky will happen. Although this kind of thing does not happen many times, even once, it will make people regret it for a lifetime. Thus, under no circumstances should young children and pets stay in the car unattended.The above example is more extreme. A common problem is that cars generate too much heat. This temperature can burn you whenever you are near a car.

So, Electric bikes with lower heat production seem to be more suitable for short-distance travel. Of course, choosing the right travel time is also very important. It is not recommended that you go out at noon or afternoon.
