Maybe because the term ‘scooter’ sounds innocent and leads people to think of the two-wheeled push toys they enjoyed as kids, there can be a tendency to dismiss the potential for danger. But today’s scooters go far beyond the narrow metal push vehicles of a simpler time. Today’s scooters may range from electric or gas-powered vehicles on which riders stand to mopeds, classic Italian Vespas and even a stand-and-ride SegwayTM or Cruiser.
