Staying safe on your scooter is easy. Just take a few safety precautions and you will be able to scoot to your hearts content. Follow these 4 rules.

1. HEADS UP - WEAR A HELMET
Whether you scoot the school run, hop on for a 5 minute run to the shops or are just practising. It is essential every scooter rider wears a helmet. Making sure your helmet fits properly is incredibly important. There is no point wearing a helmet that is loose or doesn't fit correctly. 

2. BE SEEN
 Be seen when scooting or cycling on darker days with an easy to install light. Whether you choose light up wheels or a traditional scooter light it is important that you are seen when scooting along the pavement. Seen by other pavement users and seen by road users. 

3. BE HEARD
The third essential is to ensure you are heard on your scooter. Unlike other scooter models, Micro scooters don't make that annoying tinny, cheap rattle when gliding along the pavement (they are Swiss designed and engineered after all). So you will need something else that ensures other people know you are there. The quickest, cheapest and in our opinion, best solution is to get yourself a bell. A bell can be easily mounted on a scooter or bike and give off a loud satisfying ding for all other pavement and road users to hear. 

4. SCOOTER KNEE AND ELBOW PADS
Scooter knee and elbow pads Keeping your softer bones or bonier bones wrapped up and safe is the final step in ensuring you are safe to scoot. Choose from knee and elbow pads in a range of colours, designs and ages for the ultimate in comfort and protection. Ensure that the pads are well fitted to the user. They should be snug not over tight to allow the rider room to handle their scooter or bike.
