How to choose the best electric scooter for your kid
Kids have different athletic ability, and their motor skills are not always determined by age. Scooting works well for children who have fine motor skills required to help them steer, ride, and push a scooter without parent supervision.
If your son or daughter is more of a thrill seeker they might go well start with an electric scooter straight away.
Scooter safety is the priority followed by performance and reliability. Choosing an age appropriate scooter is the best way to safe scooting experience.
The recommended age to ride a powered scooter is now 8-years old and above.
Check local laws and regulations
A Consumer Reports survey found that more than 1 in 4 riders weren't entirely sure about the traffic laws related to riding electric scooters. If you, too, aren't sure, check with your city about its rules.
Teach your kid how to ride properly
Keep hold of the handlebars all of the time. Because scoot handlebars are shorter than most bicycles, one hand off can instantly lead to a fall.
Avoid wet conditions where you can. Also stay away from ice, mud, water and slippery drain covers.
Your kids should never wear headphones or use a mobile phone or camera while riding.
