More and more people are starting to enjoy the fun and ease of scooters. People are finding they can reach their destination for a fraction of the cost of driving a car. While electric-assisted bicycles are under some Federal legislation, the smaller electric scooters are not. Additionally, local ordinances will vary from state to state with California and Oregon being two states with permission laws.

To give you an example of the types of laws that govern electric scooters, consider Seattle, Washington. In this particular city, the municipal codes stipulate:

  • Electric scooters must be ridden on arterials, not striped bike lanes, neighborhood streets as long as the speed limit is not over 25 miles per hour, and auto roadways and boulevards associated with parks.

  • Electric scooters cannot be ridden on recreation or transportation trails or any other multi-use trail, park pathways, or sidewalks.
While the benefits of an electric scooter include ease, convenience, support for the environment, and more, there have been risks as outlined by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, CPSC. In fact, the CPSC has provided several alerts regarding the number of accidents involving small-wheeled scooters, which include electric scooters. The main risk was with smaller children that were injured. The CPSC also advised that the electric scooters designed with larger wheels and better braking systems handled better and safer, although they could still be unsafe in specific conditions.

Even with this small risk, the electric scooter continues to grow in popularity. As time has passed, manufacturers have designed numerous makes and models. Some of the scooter designs are advanced, providing a superior level of quality in relation to performance. The scooters ranging in the 180 to 250 watt class are generally the best choice for flat surfaces and the scooters in the 350 or more watt class are better for hilly areas. Just remember that the watts listed on the scooter are not necessarily a valid indicator for the performance.

The largest group of people buying scooters is adults and parents, actually buying the scooter for their kids. Most of these scooters are used for short distances and recreational purposes. The mini-scooter design has greatly evolved over a short time and in addition to being fun, they are quiet, easy on the environment, and easy to use. When considering the purchase of an electric scooter, you want to be sure to look into the details of the scooter's service and product support and warranty.
