In the last portion of the article, we focused on what I would call preventive safety. In this article I will focus on safety equipment or protective gear that should be worn when your are riding an electric scooter. Generally, a helpful comparison for parents and others concerned about electric scooters safety would be bike riding. This is a helpful comparison because generally most electric scooters travel at speeds comparable to the speeds at which a bike rider would travel. Moreover, both bike and scooter riders are riding a machine that affords them little natural protection (vs. the metal body of a car) from impact in the event of a collision. Consequently, most of the equipment that is used by the bike riders is helpful for the scooter rider.

Helmet: The helmet is an essential for the safe electric scooter rider. The helmet protects a rider against the worst kind of injury, an injury to the head. In many accidents, the use of a helmet has been the difference between life and death for a number of riders. Helmets protect against collision type accidents where an electric scooter rider collides with a car, truck or stnading object. The helmet helps to cushion the blow. Moreover, helmets can also be helpful in falling types of accidents or incidents. these can occurr if the riders is thrown fro the electric scooter or falls off of the electric scooter. Helmets are usually made out of some type of plastic. Ideally, the helmet should be strapped on so that it will not fall off.

Appropriate Clothing: This is not an essential, but the main purpose of appropraite clothing is to provide the rider with a form of protection against rashes or scrapes. Long sleeve clothing is ideal and although it will not totally prevent scrapes, this type of clothing can do a lot to prevent serious scrapes. Ideally, thicker and more durable clothing is appropriate.

Gloves: these are optional, but often help to reduce scraped and rashes. If you elect to use gloves, be sure not to select gloves that are too thick as those may impede your ability to steer or to navigate the electric scooter.

Wrist Pads: Wrist pads can be helpful to prevent falls on the hands. Wrist pad can help to soften the impact and prevent broken or sprained wrists in the event of collision or fall.

Knee Pads: Same as wrist guards, these protect the knees and prevent knee scrapes and more serios injury in the event of a fall.

Elbow Pads: With elbow pads, you will have three key areas covered by protective gear. These are the three areas that a rider will typically fall on an can prevent injuries.

Shoes: the slectioon of shoes that the rider uses can be important. You should not ride the scooters using shoes that are slippery or lack approprate threads, otherwise, it may be difficult to stay on the electric scooter. Skateboard shoes can help as some of the same positions used on a skateboard are used to stay on the scooter. however, overall, the scooter is pretty easy to use and stay on (unlike the skateboard) since it had handlebars.
