We are looking at getting our childen 9 @10 electric scooters for Christmas. Would be very grateful for advice on the safety of these scooters, is the charge they hold long enough and the best place to purchase them. The scooters we are looking for are like the old scoot along ones with a bit of power not mopeds.
Many thanks.

Big can of worms - thought about some for our kids but there are legal issues around using them on pavements or on public highways.......

I know it sounds daft but officially I think they come under the same rules as mopeds....

I think the same, also for mobility scooters, a lot of the larger ones are easily capable of 8mph which may not sound a lot but on a busy pavement is fast enough to cause some serious harm to anyone unlucky enough to be in their way!

There is a specific exemption for mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs - powered bicycles are also defined differently but I guess they didn't think of kids scooters when they drafted the law.........

We have an area where the children can ride safely and live 2 miles from the nearest village. Do the batterys last long enough on these things to travel 2 miles?

Ours last about an hour from what I remember, we have 3 we don't use.


Why don't you use them?

After reading all that we will maybe think twice. Thanks

you mean 4 miles unless you going to carry them back, wasnt thewre a big thing about people getting pulled by the police as they arent meant for pavements

Because I'm 20 haha, we've had them for like 5 years, but still didn't use them much, just because we weren't really 'into' scooters. They pretty much never got used so are kinda new, just to let you know though they are really heavy. How much were you looking at spending?


A maximum of £150.00.

For two? Ours are like this one:

They look great, do you have any details for them. What sort of speed they do, how long they take to charge and then run out.
Thanks

No idea sorry, how much of a rush are you in? I'm going home on the 14th so can check then.


Not in a rush, have quite a few weeks to go until Christmas.:santa:
