During the last several years, the popularity of mopeds and scooters has skyrocketed. With gas prices continually on the rise, it is no surprise that these modes of transportation have become a popular alternative. Although these types of motor vehicles can be of significant help and even fun to ride, they are not free from danger. Much like motorcyclists, moped and scooter drivers tend to overlook the importance of using safety equipment such as helmets. Furthermore, the compact size of scooters and mopeds make them much more difficult to see by other motorists who may be distracted or driving negligently. This lack of visibility may lead to serious injury and could possibly result in a multi-vehicle car accident or collision.
