Are you ready to become a scooter superhero? Then it’s time to gear up and get ready for some serious scootering. We will give you the lowdown on everything you need to know to stay safe and protected while zooming around on your scooter. From superhero gear to following traffic rules and keeping your ride in top shape, we’ve got you covered. So buckle up, little riders, and let’s get started….

Scooter Safety

1. Superhero Gear

Being a scooter superhero isn’t only about looking cool, it’s also about being safe and responsible while you ride. And that means having the right gear to protect you from potential accidents. Think of it like suiting up for a mission! Remember, accidents can happen to anyone.

So, if you’re ready to become a true scooter superhero, let’s dive in….

First up, you need a helmet! Make sure it’s nice and snug to protect your precious head! It is important that the helmet is the right size to make sure it offers the correct protection so make sure to check the sizing guide before purchasing. 

Next up, knee and elbow pads! They will make sure you don’t get hurt if you skid and slide on the pavement. Plus, they make you look like you’ve got superhero muscles!

Try to wear brightly colored clothing and reflective gear to increase your visibility to other drivers and pedestrians.

Last but not least, closed-toe shoes! Trust us, it’s no fun to scrape up your toes and have to pack your scooter away for a while!

2. Follow the Rules of the Road, Scooter Style!

Ok speedy scooter riders…you may feel like you’re flying, but you’re still part of the traffic on the road. You will need to follow these rules to keep everyone safe… 

  • Where possible, stick to the pavement!
  • In the road, ride on the left side of the road, just like cars. This way, you can see what’s coming.
  • Signal your turns! Let other drivers and pedestrians know where you’re headed by using hand signals. 
  • Get to know your street signs. Road signs are like the secret language of the road. Make sure you know what they mean!

3. Keep Your Ride in Tip Top Shape! 

You’ve got the gear and you know the traffic rules, but there’s one more thing you need to keep in mind to become a true scooter pro – maintaining your ride! Just like any other vehicle, your scooter needs regular care…. But don’t worry, it’s easy!

  • Ask someone to check your bolts and parts:

Your scooter goes through a lot of bumps and jumps so it’s important to ask an adult to check the bolts on your scooter every now and again. Tightening loose bolts will keep your ride safe and secure. If you notice that any of the parts aren’t ok, be sure to replace them with original micro parts.

  • Check your brakes:

Stopping is just as important as going! Occasionally, things like sticks and stones can get stuck between the brake and your back wheel, which can damage your wheel and cause the brakes not to work very well. So, make sure to check your brakes regularly and clear out anything to ensure smooth and safe stops.

  • Keep your Scooter clean:

Your scooter takes you on exciting adventures, so it deserves some love and attention too! Show your scooter how much you care by keeping it clean. Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the frame, handlebars, and wheels regularly. 

  • Where should your Scooter sleep?

After a long day of scootering, your ride deserves a cozy and safe place to rest. Please keep your scooter safe and sound indoors or undercover. This will protect it from the sun and rain, which can cause damage over time. Plus, your scooter will be ready to go whenever you are!
