Scooter safety tips

Information for schools on safe scooter use by students

The SlideShare and PowerPoint can help young people, their families and teachers learn how to travel safe. The presentation was developed in partnership with the Greater Wellington Regional Council.

The PDF collection of articles contains key tips and examples of what schools are doing. This can provide schools with ideas when responding to an issue in the school community or when reviewing road safety policy. 

Scooter users must take extra care to check for vehicles coming in or out of driveways, just as they would when walking. They must also follow their usual kerb drill when crossing a road.

Push scooters are classified as wheeled recreational vehicles. They are legally allowed on footpaths, as long as the rider shows consideration for other users, including pedestrians.
