Many people nowadays are getting from one place to another on skateboards and scooters.
Skateboards are still largely for teenagers, who use them for tricks as well as transportation, but commuter scooters, larger, more sturdy versions of the foot scooters little children are fond of, are now a huge trend for adults.
And with good reason. You can travel very fast on a scooter and weave skillfully in and out of pedestrians. You can go on the pavement and don’t need to risk going amongst motorised traffic on the road.
You can fold them up to go on the bus, or simply carry them, and they take up very little storage space in your home.
There are motorised versions that save you leg power, but scooting the traditional way gives you very good exercise and really uses your leg muscles! Most models have brakes, should you wish to stop suddenly, and they are not expensive.
Wear safety gear on your scooter
Make sure that you use a helmet, as well as elbow and knee pads when travelling on your scooter, in case you come off. Although this rarely happens, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
And be careful of other pedestrians as you go – it could be a good idea to have a bell fitted to warn them of your approach. If streets are very crowded, just get off and walk. Don’t try to push past people at speed, and force them to jump out of your way unexpectedly. If they step into the road to avoid you it could be dangerous, and if they get annoyed it’s also dangerous – they may try and stop you from passing, causing you to fall.
