Safe Scooter Practices

As moped and scooters are becoming more popular in urban environments, drivers of cars are becoming more aware of their presence.
In fact, scooters sales have significantly increased globally and in the United States over the last two decades.
With the introduction of electric powered scooters and highly-efficient gas powered scooters, these two-wheeled vehicles are proving to be good economic decisions as well as an exciting and quick way to get from place to place.
But, much like motorcycle riders, scooter and moped drivers are vulnerable to harmful injuries if they are involved in an accident.
Most scooter accidents involve a collision between a scooter driver and a larger vehicle.
These accidents can be very dangerous for the exposed rider, but many are avoidable.
A common reason for accidents between mopeds and cars is that the driver of the car did not see the moped rider.
These smaller vehicles are susceptible to getting lost in drivers' blind spots.
To avoid these types of accidents, it is important for scooter riders to make themselves visible and apparent to the drivers around them.
Every scooter and moped driver should assume that they are invisible to every other driver.
This mentality will help them take the proper steps to getting noticed when another driver does not see them.
Wearing clothing with reflective material and always driving with your head light on is a great way to increase your visibility.
Being seen can be the difference between a near miss and a harmful accident.
If you have been involved in an accident while driving your moped or scooter, you may be able to seek compensation for your damages.
