Another crucial thing is to teach kids road safety rules as falls and collisions with other vehicles are very common. It’s important to know that child experts consider a scooter an inappropriate toy for any kid under the age of eight.
To prevent any injuries, parents should make sure that their children use safety equipment, like helmets, and protect their wrists, elbows, and knees. Also, scooters must have a bell or horn, as well as brakes. These rules are essential when it comes to a safe scooter ride. But some parents don’t think about them.
Family ride in India
A father in India allowed his 5-year-old daughter to ride a scooter with him, his wife, and their other 3-year-old child sitting behind. The little girl riding a two-wheeler was spotted on a busy Indian street. The father was the only one wearing a protective helmet.
