Here in Korea, scooters are everywhere. They are most commonly ridden by fast food delivery men, one of whom can be seen in this photo. Interestingly enough, they deliver food with real, thick plastic dishes and metal spoons and chopsticks – nothing is disposable. An hour or two after they’ve delivered your food, they’ll come back and pick up the dishes which you have left outside your door. From there, they’ll return them to the restaurant where they will be cleaned and reused.
Scooters, not cars, are almost always used to deliver food because parking is a nightmare in Korea. This is a rather small country with a large population. So the delivery men can ride their scooters right up to your door, park on the sidewalk, and deliver your food without a moment’s delay.
