Thinking of buying an electric scooter for 7 year old girl. Interested to know of peoples experiences with them and if they'd had any grief from the police too.

where is she going to ride it

Only ok if you have lots of private land

She'd be riding it in a cul de sac, and also on public paths next to a field. So not in busy areas with lots of pedestrians/traffic.

Know they are legally supposed to be for use on private land only, but wondering how their use is being interpreted day to day by police

I wouldn't bother, sounds like a load of hassle, just get a normal scooter, much more fun, good exercise and it will tire your daughter out more:thumbsup:
Got one .. lol. Would get her a bike, but she's sort of in between sizes. So we'll be waiting until next year for a new one.

So why were you wondering if I'd still buy one if they were to fine parents for BUYING them?

I've asked for people's real experiences here to help me make up my mind. If you have one, I'd be interested to hear it.;-)

Don't buy one. They are useless. They take 5-6 hours to charge for about half an hours use. They won't even go for that long if there is any gradient at all.
I notice the ones you are thinking about are not suitable for 7 year olds anyway.

because typing what i asked was quicker than typing out

would you still be considering to buy one for your child to use on public land knowing you could be fined for it, but if you want to be silly about it

would you still be considering to buy one for your child to use on public land knowing you could be fined for it?
#12
Think they are not safe to use for 7 year olds

Which is why I'm asking for people's experiences?

It is illegal for people to ride pedal cycles on the footpath, other than a designated cyclepath. Have you done it,. Has your child done it. Have you or they been fined?

It is illegal to ride a pedal cycle after dark without lights ............ I could go on and on.

I'm asking for real experiences, but thanks for your thoughts anyway

OP i dont have one of these but i do know that the kids around us have them and they have all been taken home by police officers and told not to use them on the paths, lanes or roads in our area, but having said that our local police dont stop the scrambler bikes or off road ones either, which to me are far more dangerous then a powered scooter.
to be honest i dont like the look of either scooters they dont look to sturdy to me, I know kids will have helmets etc on but still.
the one is for ages over 10 so be careful if you choose this one
Good feedback, thanks

Decision made. Thanks to those who offered advice.
#17
What did you decide then?
#18
We ordered two last week, thinking about getting a petrol one also, we have areas to use them on so the police won't be making any money from us for next years christmas ball.
