Electric Scooter Safety Guidelines

Electric scooters are great fun, but it’s important to remember to keep to safety guidelines, as per the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommendations:

  • Always wear protective gear: helmet, knee pads and elbow pads.
  • Wear shoes that hold your feet, and therefore keep you on the scooter.
  • Children under the age of 12 should not use motorized scooters, only kick scooter.
  • Avoid uneven road and loose debris.
  • Do not go into car traffic with your electric scooter.
  • Unless your scooter has head and taillights, don’t ride it at night.
  • Check for local laws regarding scooters with local authorities.
  • Read the instruction manual, observe all safety warnings on the scooter.
  • Electric scooters are designed to carry 1 person at a time.
  • As with all “people moving vehicles”, check for loose bolts, flat tires, etc. before riding the scooter.
  • Take care of others.
