Rules to play Push Scooters
Scooters have small wheels, around 10cm or so. The braking system is not always reliable because the brake cant grip enough surface area on a small wheel and brakes become less effective with age. This, coupled with the low clearance of scooters, means that losing control is quite likely, particularly when riding over rough surfaces such as cobblestones or large cracks in the pavement.
Cheaper scooters may have dangerous design flaws, such as flimsy folding mechanisms that may give way under pressure or sharp edges that increase the risk of injury. Avoid cheaply made scooters and choose a design that matches your childs weight, motor skills and physical development.There is currently no Australian Standard for kick scooters.
