While on Wheels
Rules of the Ride
If your child is under age 10, he or she should be restricted to riding on sidewalks and paths. Make sure kids understand the rules of the road and obey all traffic signs.
Guard with Gear
Helmets, kneepads, elbow pads, and wrist guards are recommended while riding a scooter, rollerblading or skateboarding.
Ride on smooth, well-lit, paved roads with minimal traffic, and tell kids to avoid busy streets, private driveways and gravel roads.
