Scooter and Moped Safety

Scooters and mopeds can be enjoyable ways to get around town, get to work, or just enjoy the outdoors. These compact and quick vehicles are a great way to get from place to place while saving gas, time, and money. But, like motorcycle riders, moped and scooter drivers are vulnerable to dangerous injuries in the event of an accident. Most accidents that occur with this type of vehicle involve a larger car colliding with an unprotected rider. These accidents can cause serious damage, both to the rider and to the vehicle.

If you or someone you love has been injured while riding a scooter or moped, you need a strong, experienced attorney to help you fight for compensation. Scooter accident injuries can result in costly medical bills, lost time at work, and significant property damage. Please contact the Iowa motorcycle accident attorneys at LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling (515) 705-0233 for more information about your legal options in the event of an accident.

Safe Riding Practices

Safe riding practices on your moped or scooter can make your drives even more enjoyable. Being properly trained and wearing the proper safety gear can significantly reduce your chances of being injured in an accident. One of the biggest issues for moped and scooter drivers is being seen. You are more likely to be involved in an accident if you are not making your presence known to the drivers around you. The following are easy ways to be noticed on your moped:

  • Use your horn
  • Wear reflective clothing
  • Leave your headlight on at all times
  • Do not drive in blind spots
  • Use your indicators with every maneuver
  • Assume other drivers do not see you and act accordingly

Safe driving practices can be the difference between a near miss and a deadly accident. Always be aware of your surroundings while riding.
