Use your head with scooters

Editor, OBSERVER:

I love to see the young adults in our community enjoying the newly available electric scooters.

However, the riders I have seen are not wearing helmets. Helmet use is generally recognized as an important safety consideration for bicycle use. The same should be required on scooters.

Head injuries from a fall can prove to be life threatening and long lasting. All such suffering could have been prevented by helmet use.

Ultimately, helmets could be provided without cost by friends and neighbors whose family members have outgrown them.

Clearly, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
