Cities like Santa Monica in California have already passed regulation on the use of scooters on their streets. For example, in Santa Monica they’re only allowed on the street and with the flow of traffic. They’re not allowed on sidewalks or parks. Also, except for the beach bike path, they’re also allowed on bike lanes through the city.
There have been a number of serious injuries and deaths reported related to scooter usage. Some of these models can go up to 20 miles per hour and can cause serious injuries to the rider or pedestrians if a wheel gets stuck on a small pothole or the scooter hits an obstacle. Problems with the braking system and wheels have also been reported. We strongly urge riders to always wear a helmet.
Also, scooters are not for kids. Per California code, you must have any kind of valid driver’s license in order to operate a scooter. Driver’s permits are also acceptable for scooter riding.
Finally, do not use a scooter with more than one rider, they were just only design to support and balance one rider! Although it may look great and fun, it is probable that the scooter will fail when there is more than one rider on one scooter, causing injury to the riders and/or pedestrians around.
