The main causes of child scooter accidents are used to form the basis of our training. So we teach them the following information:
How to check their scooter is safe
What to do when they get tired
How to slow down, stop and deal with an emergency situation
Correct pavement use and etiquette
Common pavement dangers and hazards
How to spot cars reversing from driveways
Dealing with junctions and parked cars when using a scooter.
All this information has been carefully crafted into an active playground and roadside training program with the expert help of teachers and training professionals.
Training is lively and fun with the majority of training taking place on the roads and pavements where the children will be scooting to school. There is no better way to prepare them for safe independent scooter journeys to school. They finish their training safer, smarter and more confident scooter riders.
All our training fits perfectly with initiatives required for schools to complete their STARS accreditated School Travel Plans.
We also provide worksheets, support material and surveys to reinforce the learning outcomes of this training.
Faster and more fun than walking, safer and cheaper than riding a bike. It's no wonder that scooters are now one of the most common types of transport for children aged 4 to 10 years. However, with an increase in usage comes an increase in accidents.
For2Feet were one of the first organisations in the UK to create a unique training program aimed at reducing the number of scooter accidents.
Training is designed for children in years 1 to 2. The years in which parents allow their children to ride ahead and out of direct parental control.
