Scooter safety Day 2

Kia Ora

I thought this post had been uploaded, but blog posts from iPads can be a bit mysterious.

You can see Room 13 children practicing riding scooters on sidewalks and looking out for vehicles in drive ways and the like.

Also practicing stopping, turning, and swerving.

People and children are of the belief that scooters are 'easy to ride' and safe, but there are increasing numbers of head and brain injuries from scooters. The reasons are; anyone can get on a scooter and go fast, they aren't trained to use them, they are actually quite unstable if there is any inconsistency in the riding surface, and children don't usually wear helmets.

It was great to see them getting upskilled, and informed.

All the best.
