Scooter Safety Tips and Your Legal Rights

Scooters are a very attractive transportation option. They get great gas mileage. They’re easier to handle than a motorcycle but faster than a bicycle. They’re also fun vehicles to drive and relatively inexpensive.

Before you run out and buy one, you should also be aware of a few important points:

  1. Scooters don’t have safety features that are standard in cars (i.e. seatbelts, air bags, etc.).
  2. They don’t have the stability that most motorcycles have on the road.

Staying Safe on Your Scooter

In order to stay safe on the road on a scooter or moped, follow these tips:

Colorado Scooter Laws

In Colorado, you don’t need a special license to drive a scooter unless the engine is larger than 50 CCs. If it’s more powerful than that, the scooter will be classified as a motorcycle and you’ll be required to get a motorcycle license. You do, however, need to register your scooter.

Even though you’re on a scooter, you still have the same rights as other vehicles on the road. If you’ve been involved in a scooter or moped accident, talk with a skilled Colorado accident attorney at the Babcock Law Firm about your case.
