Some scooter safety stuff
ALWAYS use a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads.
This is a small investment and can instantly eliminate almost two-thirds of possible scooter accidents.
Children under eight should always be supervised when using scooters.
Almost a third of all scooter-related injuries and accidents involve children under the age of eight. As everyone knows, scooters are capable of traveling very quickly, and children that age do not always have the judgment or coordination to handle these high speeds.
Use scooters in a safe places.
Cars and scooters don't mix, especially for younger riders. Smooth, paved surfaces are best - avoid bumpy, uneven, wet or rocky surfaces. School yards, parks, paved trails are examples of safe places to "scoot"!
Do not ride a scooter at night.
