How to use a scooter safely

Electric scooters are a convenient and fun way to get around the city. Unfortunately, like any other means of transport, electric scooters can sometimes run into problems. To help you solve the most common problems so you can get back on the road quickly and safely, here are some tips:

  • First check the battery connections. A loose connection can lead to a variety of problems, including reduced power and even a non-working scooter.
  • Make sure your brakes are in good condition. Worn or damaged brake pads can prevent you from slowing down or stopping quickly enough to avoid an accident.
  • Look out for any visible signs of damage, such as bent steering wheels, cracked frames and damaged wiring.
  • If your scooter makes strange noises or vibrates more than usual, take it to a professional mechanic for a check-up.
  • Check your speed settings regularly to make sure they are working properly. Low speed settings should be enough to allow you to drive safely in town. Higher speeds can be dangerous if they are not adjusted properly.
  • Avoid riding on wet or icy surfaces as this can seriously damage the scooter and cause an accident.

By following these tips and taking some time to troubleshoot common problems with electric scooters, you can ensure that your vehicle is safe, reliable and ready for the road. Have a fun and safe ride!
