Harsh Goenka wants this vehicle to travel in his crowded city
In the 51-seconds video clip, a young man can be seen riding a self-balancing electric scooter on a crowded road
After sharing his experience of having a restaurant-like eat-in at home, business tycoon Harsh Goenka recently took to Twitter to share a unique video that is going viral for all the right reasons. Goenka shared a video where a man can be seen riding what appears to be a hoverboard on a crowded street. Since being shared, the post has garnered all sorts of comments.
Here's what Harsh Goenka tweeted:
This is what I need to travel in my crowded city. So cool! pic.twitter.com/n1Arl8DYVl— Harsh Goenka (@hvgoenka) July 6, 2020
In the 51-seconds video, a young man can be seen riding a self-balancing electric scooter amid heavy traffic. As the video moves further, the man can be seen maneuvering through traffic.
While sharing the video, Goenka said, "This is what I need to travel in my crowded city. So cool!" Although many loved the idea of having a personal transporter like the one in the video, few raised questions about its safety while using it in heavy traffic. Several others said that the man in the video wasn't wearing any safety gear, including a helmet.

Terrifying!" while another wrote, "Don't forget to put on your helmet and other protective gears. The guy is not using." One comment read, "How is he balancing?"
Here's how netizens reacted:
Those scooters hv been operational in the US for a while. They can be really unsafe...more unsafe than bicycles because of where vehicles hit the riders. Riders also rarely wear helmets. If they zip and weave through traffic, they're also likely to slow it down for everyone else— Tanvi Madan (@tanvi_madan) July 6, 2020

Don't forget to put on your helmet and other protective gears. The guy is not using. ðÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂ
What I really liked about this video is the polite tone and appreciation. Very very rare thing to see when someone is filmed on a street for something different. ðÂÂÂÂÂÂ— Un peu de soleil ðÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂ (@amarik1801) July 6, 2020
Well, Personally I feel its better to walk or cycle down to your workplace rather than being this lazy. ðÂÂÂÂÂÂ— Deepak Bhardwaj (@Deepbhardwaj_) July 6, 2020
