Be Seen On Your Scooter

Much like motorcycle riders, scooter or moped drivers must take intentional steps to make sure that other drivers recognize their presence. Most streets are dominated by cars, SUVs and even larger commercial vehicles. Moped and scooter drivers are at a serious disadvantage if they are involved in an accident with a larger vehicle. Not only can they easily be overpowered by a larger vehicle, but they are also more difficult for other drivers to see because their vehicles do strike as large a profile and riders are positioned lower than other motorists.

If you have been injured in a scooter or moped accident and you believe that your injury was caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Visibility Is Key

The majority of scooter accidents occur between a rider and another car. Often these accidents are the result of inattentive drivers. Intersections are especially dangerous as turning drivers may fail to observe moped riders on their right. The following steps can help scooter riders been seen and avoid accidents:

  • Never assume that another vehicle sees you
  • Wear reflective materials to increase visibility
  • Always drive with your head light on
  • Know where your horn is so that you can use it quickly and effectively
  • Do not ride in blind spots
