Scooters need to be banned and parents who encourage their kids to use them (generally crashing straight into members of the public) need to seriously consider what they are doing. What happened to good old fashioned walking!? We are encouraging a generation of lazy kids!

Kids can't win nowadays??! Banning scooters??!! They are told to get out and have exercise and then get criticised.. It's not down to the scooters but the parents who do not teach children any manners. Should bikes also be banned?? Rollerskates??
Oh and I will be buying my 3, 5 and 7 year old a new scooter this year as I don't want them sitting in on computers all day

Scooters offer little to no exercise....all the kids I know who have them and many I have seen out and about literally have a tantrum if they are made to walk anywhere and only calm down if they are allowed to use a scooter, its ridiculous. Agreed about the parents needing to use a bit of discipline however literally none offer any sort of apology when their kids knock into people into or zip around peoples feet. I have even seen a kid go flying into the back of an old lady, neither parent nor kid said sorry! Unlike bikes and (generally) rollerskates, scooters are unfortunately used up and down high streets and can be dangerous because of this, particularly as parents seem to let their kids roam free on them.

Yes I am ridiculous, tell that to my mate who had the trauma of (luckily at a slow speed) hitting a kid who went zooming out into a road. Then maybe you will understand some of the danger they pose.

Some pedestrians need to be trained - adults included.

Wouldn't mind one myself, whoooopeeeeee

thats down to the rider not the scooter - thats like saying if "jonny" in bradford crashes into an old lady, then we should ban all scooters - its people like you why H&S has gone mad

never seen kids on scooters crashing into people - scootering isnt lazy … never seen kids on scooters crashing into people - scootering isnt lazy you m*** and it teaches kids a new skill - what next ban cycling - idiot



Oh so because YOU haven't seen it, it means it doesn't happen does it!? Unless you are some sort of all seeing God then I doubt your view on whether it happens or not counts as a conclusive argument that it doesn't! In the city context that I am referring to, bikes are used on the road, scooters are used on public walkways so two completely different things, plus parents very often let kids loose on their scooters (not all, but a lot). I also fail to see the skill in pulling your leg back and forth. Also please don't ever refer to me or anyone as a 'm word' ever again, it is highly offensive to anyone who knows what it is slang for (edit: I am glad to see that comment was removed by moderators).

Ok banning all scooters may have been a strong statement on my part but they certainly need better supervision from parents (I refer you to what happened to my friend in one of my posts above). As a cyclist myself I agree H&S has gone mad but I hope you never have the misfortune of being part of a scenario like what my mate went through. It will certainly change your view on scooters and make you more aware of just how many children use them incorrectly.

So, if a kid runs into the street, do we ban feet?

does this price include VAT (+20%) ?

Most issues with kids are down to how the parents bring them up. They don't need scooters to be bad kids. Mine have scooters and go to skate parks to practice. The way some adults drive i still do not allow my 8 year old or my 11 year old to ride their bikes on the road. If age is the issue then do we ban mobility scooters from pavements? its all about being sensible and teaching kids how to play safely and how to make sure its in a safe area. If you are going to live in an area where children and parents alike have no morals then issues will occur. I consider your comments are made without full knowledge of the issues and it concerns me that someone with an ounce of intelligence can make such uninformed one sided comments. Making decisions and comments made up with only one sided facts and information can cause so many people to make silly comments. I had roller skates, skateboards, scooters and bikes as a child and can not remember ever being allowed to use them in shops or on busy streets. I still play on them all with my kids. As far as exercise is concerned all offer great alternatives to being indoors. Perhaps exercising caution with ill informed comments would give you greater chance to reflect upon what you think and what actually may be true.

Scooters are exercise and they are fun for children. I had one in the 80's; they burn more calories than bikes.

You're a miserabilist. (how's that for an 'm' word?) You're that guy when I was growing up that wouldn't let us kick a ball around on the grass because we might damage a window, or climb a tree because we might damage it.

I don't like your comment BTW; clicked the button accidentally.

And the laughable hypocrisy of this coming from an adult cyclist. The **** I see adult cyclists pull on the roads on a daily basis makes kids look great.
