The local police in Belmar, New Jersey have switched from using gas-powered scooters to patrol the beach area to GEM neighborhood electric vehicles. The scooters were apparently consuming up to fifty gallons a week of gasoline which has now been superseded by plugging in the GEMs each night. Apparently even the mayor of Belmar has bought a GEM to supplement his Jaguar and the local kids think the 25mph door-less GEM is far cooler than the Jag.
