Preventing Scooter Accidents
Scooter accidents can occur for a number of reasons, but quite frequently it is because of low visibility. Scooters are small vehicles that can easily stay in a driver’s blind spot. If a driver does not see the scooter, they are liable to change lanes into you or turn in front of you, resulting in a collision.
In order to prevent scooter accidents, it is important that all scooter drivers wear bright colors and a helmet with reflectors on the back. Additionally, check to make sure all of your lights are working before going out.
