Scooter's Speed Limit

ELECTRIC scooters marketed at children can hit speeds of up to 60km/h, according to online discussions.

Christmas catalogues from major department stores show the scooters are meant to have a top speed of about 16km/h.

However, popular websites contain detailed instructions on how to modify them to go more than three times as fast.

Kidsafe SA executive officer Helen Noblet said the scooters were dangerous even when they were just travelling at 16km/h.

"The serious injuries obviously are the head and face injuries and the common ones are wrist and forearm fractures," she said.

"You only have to be on a slight slope and the speed increases."

The manufacturers of the popular Razor scooters warn they can be hazardous and warn against modifications.

Ms Noblet said Kidsafe wants children to be physically active, but safer alternatives included non-powered scooters, bikes and skates, worn with the proper protective gear.

She said the main problem with the electric scooters was that while they are meant to be ridden only on private property, many people did not have the room to accommodate them so children ended up on footpaths and roads.

Linny, 8, of Milang has an electric scooter with a top speed of about 16km/h.

His mother, Sue Biggs, said training, supervision and a helmet were important.

"You have to make sure they know how to operate it properly. He is very capable and he rides motorbikes as well," she said. "We've got an acre block just for the kids."

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and
tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can
be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
