May your holiday Christmas be cheerful, bright and safe. On vacation or not, common sense requires that you learn to ride a scooter and get there safely.
Accidents and injuries can happen while you’re away from home, and your safety comes first. These vital habits should be built into your system and into your daily routine as they bring you awareness. Many will rush to malls and specialty stores to shop early to avoid the Christmas rush. Being vigilant can go a long way in avoiding dangerous situations when away from home, during the day or at any other time.
Here are some basic electric scooter safety tips for your safety. You develop the habit when it becomes part of your routine. For your own personal benefit, please read and follow these safety instructions:
Drive according to the instructions in the manual. Each page of your Circooter Next Generation Electric Scooter for Adults Owner’s Manual contains tips and instructions that are easy to understand and follow.
Always wear a helmet. A helmet can make the difference between life and death. Do not be lazy or careless when using it. Make it a habit to wear a helmet.
Wear all safety gear to stay safe. Along with the helmet, elbow and knee pads protect your body from broken bones, bruises and other types of injury. You can also wear heavier boots to protect your feet in case of a fall. Gloves protect your fingers and hands from possible injury. Wear suitable, comfortable goggles or goggles to prevent wind, dust, and other foreign particles from blocking your vision. Wear a glowing fluorescent vest at night to avoid accidents and be seen by other drivers in dark places. A jacket can be useful to protect you from the cold. Check out the Circooter guide to the best electric scooter accessories for the best gear.
Make sure your battery is fully charged before you start driving. To get where you need to go, remember this important task like making sure your electric scooter battery is fully charged to avoid stopping halfway through. If the battery level is too low, your e-scooter may not reach the desired distance. Wouldn’t it be a disappointment if you missed the party or celebration?
Check your brake systems to make sure they are working properly, inflated and in good condition. Make sure all your brake systems are working and working well. Do this with your brake systems before every ride because you never know when one or the other will fail. Rule of thumb: If none of your scooter’s brakes are working, don’t drive. You should always check the rear view of your inflated low profile tires to make sure they are properly inflated and that there are no holes or leaks. Check your manual for the correct tire pressure for scooters.
Check your lights to make sure they are working. Always turn on all your headlights when driving at night; the brighter, the better. If some of your lamps are broken, fix them as soon as possible. Circooter electric scooters have front and rear lights and bottom lights.
Drive yourself. This is undeniable. Manufacturers insist that electric scooters are for one person! Riding with another person makes the trip much more difficult to control as the maximum load on the scooter is exceeded. A possible fall would be much worse for both drivers. Always drive alone and focus on where you are driving.
Obey local traffic regulations. Do not ignore traffic rules (or other laws), as violating or disobeying passenger safety rules can put you and others at risk.
Avoid heavy traffic. That’s right, an electric scooter is very maneuverable. It can easily happen in traffic, but don’t try to drive between lines of cars waiting at red lights. It’s never safe. The more cars stuck in heavy traffic, the greater the chance of an accident, and you don’t want to be in the middle of it.
Don’t drive too fast. Although electric scooters have different speed limits, please do not exceed the speed limit allowed by your local Australian traffic laws. To be responsible. Be alert and focused. Don’t drive so fast that it becomes unsafe, even within the city speed limit.
Signal when turning carefully. Always signal before turning, then turn slowly and carefully, being aware of your direction. Always be alert. Make sure you are aware of the direction you are headed and what to expect.
Avoid driving in rainy or humid weather. The Circooter Owner’s Manual has a page on how to keep your electric scooter from getting wet, and here the manual does not recommend riding in the rain or in wet weather. This is a warning even if the scooter is waterproof or waterproof. An electric scooter is an electrical device that can easily break or fail if it comes into contact with water. There can be significant safety and visibility issues, especially when the road becomes slippery when it rains. Also, rain tends to reduce visibility on the road.
The precautionary measures are clearly listed. Now, what about the risks? In general, Off Road Electric Scooters are safe. Of course, as with any vehicle, potential accidents are possible and will happen from time to time. But with a conscious effort, you can help mitigate these risks to maximize the function and performance of your scooter, and ensure the safety of your electric scooter on vacation and beyond.
