The police department of Providence, Rhode Island is testing out a trial run of the all electric Vectix Maxi scooter. The vehicle has a range of 60 miles, a 3-5 hour charge time, and a top speed of just over 60 miles per hour. Four officers will be participating in the 3 month trial, and Vectix has provided the scooters free of charge. The trial is part of a larger initiative to save money and reduce environmental impact by the Providence police. Providence is the third US city to test the electric scooters, and police in the UK have been experimenting with them as well.
