It’s still readable and the point made. Only the second half of the article is removed and it’s not essential.

Already see signs of this in SA. Lots of tuc-tucs around Pretoria now, and starting to see electric ones too.

The only issue is that these things (and the small scooters) are all intended to go at around 45km/h. Go anywhere in Asia where the majority of traffic is scooters and/or tuc-tucs, and all traffic everywhere (except selected highways) moves at max 45km/h…

They are extremely cost-effective for moving people and cargo around - but once there are too many on the road they become the de-facto speed limit for all traffic.
