Scooters make for a speedy way to get around Connecticut, but they are not without their dangers. What safety precautions do you take to avoid a personal injury? 

To help you remain unharmed while getting around town, note CNET’s suggestions for scooter safety. The right tip could help prevent a tragedy. 

Do not ride intoxicated  

Riding a scooter intoxicated is not as dangerous as getting behind the wheel of a car, but both acts are unsafe. Additionally, you still risk getting a DUI even though you are not driving in the traditional sense. Rather than scoot around while drunk, take a rideshare home. 

Wear a helmet 

If you plan to ride a scooter, wear a helmet. Taking a tumble from a scooter can lead to a head injury, but wearing a helmet could provide a saving grace. Some scooter companies offer riders helmets for free, so explore that option before reserving or selecting a scooter. 

Ride one person per scooter 

You may have just enough room on your scooter for another rider, but riding with two people could prove dangerous for the both of you. Scooters have weight limits, and you must also remember that they have nothing for the person riding in the rear to hold on to. 

Check the scooter before climbing on 

Scooters do not have warning lights like cars, so there could be an issue that you do not know about. Before riding one, check to see that the wheels are straight, that the brakes work, that the scooter does not have damage and that the lights and batteries have enough power to get you where you need to go. 

Have fun while riding a scooter, but protect yourself. Hopefully, the above insights are enough to keep you safe.
