Yes, electric scooters are safe, but lack of knowledge, improper use, unforseen malfunctions, and accidents can make them appear more dangerous than they are to the general public.
Keep in mind, our electric scooters are rated and designed for single-person riding. You should take proper safety precautions, including learning how to start/stop/turn and use the features of the scooter and wearing appropriate safety gear. You should also only ride when you are fully alert (not mentally exhausted or intoxicated).
You should also know whether electric scooters are legal to drive on public roadways in your region, and what restrictions may apply (speed limit, bike lane, helmet, age, etc.) as part of your scooter research.
Like cars and bicycles, electric scooters require regular maintenance and technical understanding, and it's important to get familar with what your scooter's capabilities are and how best to ride before setting out on public roads.
