In the timid economic and environmentally aware culture of today, many people are investing in alternate forms of transportation to get to school, work, and around town. In a growing number of American cities, you could see SUVs, trucks, Smart cars, scooters and bikes all on the same busy road. With this variety of vehicles in urban traffic, the nature and severity of accidents are changing rapidly.

In the 90s, there was a decrease in the number of motorcycle accidents, but now those numbers have been on the rise. Problems for scooterists arise when they attempt to navigate the car and truck-dominated road culture in America. Compared to passengers in a car, motorcycle, motorbike and scooter riders are at a much higher risk of severe injury and death in the event of an accident.

When purchasing a scooter, many people are weighing the economic benefits but not considering the greater risk of accident fatality. Furthermore, many scooterists are unaware of the higher medical costs following an accident than their car and truck driving counterparts.

Scooter Driving Safety Tips

In order to avoid accident and injury while riding your scooter, consider the following tips:

  • Drive with heightened caution and situational awareness
  • Properly maintain your scooter
  • Don’t try to save time by riding between traffic lanes
  • Wear proper safety gear
  • Watch out for risky drivers
  • Equip yourself for inclement weather

Owning a scooter can be a fun, stylish and cheap alternative to traditional cars and trucks but can also be a substantially more hazardous form of transportation.
