How to drive an electric scooter safely ?

Freedom, speed, simplicity. This could be the motto of the electric scooters which have proliferated in recent years in all the big cities.

Easy journeys that avoid traffic jams without crowding into public transport, it sounds like a dream.

Except that the electric scooter is not without danger. Between moving cars, badly parked cars, scooters and motorcycles, pedestrians who cannot hear you coming… the risks of accidents and falls are extremely numerous. The trend of the scooter has led to an explosion of 23% in the number of injuries in one year.

So to prevent tragedies, certain rules have been put in place. You can see them in this video. But, for everyone's safety, this video also shows that it is possible to go beyond the law and protect yourself even better.

For example, what is the difference between a scooter fall and an electric scooter fall? None, you fall on the asphalt in both cases and you can bang your head against the ground or the sidewalk? Certainly, but on a scooter the helmet is compulsory. When you ride an electric scooter, it is optional. The fall therefore does not have the same consequences.

The electric scooter offers a feeling of freedom, but you have to respect the highway code for everyone's safety and always remain vigilant.

Like not riding two people on an electric scooter, because it is strictly prohibited and very dangerous.
