Get Familiar With Scooter

Know Your Scooter
By Jean Butler

Become familiar with the scooter before you ride. Read and understand instructional manuals. Check the controls. Read and understand all safety and warning labels on your scooter. Ride very cautiously until you become familiar with the way the scooter handles. Take turns slowly and give yourself extra stopping distance.

Riding your scooter with control and safety will require practice. Anyone that will be riding the scooter needs to know the proper way to ride his or her scooter. This will help ensure that you get the most mileage out of your scooter and that you avoid potential accidents by riding incorrectly. You must learn to stand firm but relaxed, keeping your weight between the wheels. Don't stand too close to the front or too far back on the scooter. Be sure to shift your weight to the rear when applying brakes, and lean forward when accelerating. Keep feet apart for more stability.

Gently steer into your turn without any jerky motions. Adjust your balance to keep the scooter upright. Always approach turns very carefully.

Front brakes provide most of your stopping power. Practice at a safe speed until you are comfortable with how they work.

Ride your scooter in a safe place away from other vehicles and in an area which will not disturb other people or animals. Be sure the riding area is a clean and dry surface. Do not ride in high traffic areas.

Scooting can be a useful, safe and fun way to get around town!
