Scooters are quickly becoming all the rage, and for good reason. They’re fun, fast, super convenient and environmentally guilt-free.
Unsurprisingly, there have been (often sensational) articles in the news recently highlighting accidents and demonising e-scooter riders on UK roads. Whilst riding electric scooters on UK roads is illegal, we have written this safety article for those who want to ensure they stay safe.
GET THE RIGHT GEAR
First and foremost make sure you wear a helmet whenever you are on your electric scooter. Against the concrete road, your head is like a squishy. Check out our helmet blog for more information.
As well as helmets we also offer other personal protective gear such as LED Lights, Reflective straps, gloves and other accessories that are designed to protect you, the rider. If you look and act like a responsible electric scooter rider, we've found other road users will treat you a little more seriously.
