I knew virtually nothing about scooters but was shopping for one for my son in college. I had contacted many places and still had no clue. When I called a2b scooters, I got great service. I believe his name was Jeff, told me about the different types and what would work best for my son. He saved me money on shipping even though I needed it asap. What a great company and even better customer service. You can't go wrong buying from them!! This is a company you can trust.

Safety and Scooters
|Using a bit of common sense when riding your electric scooter can ensure you not only have a great time but get from A to B safely. Electric scooters are motorized vehicles
and require extra precaution from the rider. Below are some helpful recommendations for getting around on your scooter safely.|
U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Recommendations:
Wear a helmet, knee pads and elbow pads. (Wrist guards may make it difficult to grip the handle and steer the scooter.)
Children under age 8 should not use non-powered scooters without close adult supervision. Children under 12 should not ride motorized scooters.
Avoid gravel and uneven pavement, which can cause falls.
Don't ride scooters in traffic.
Don't ride scooters at night - riders can't see where they're going or be seen by others.
Wear sturdy shoes.
Owners of scooters should check with local authorities for local laws regarding scooters.
