It is important to always check for small children and scooters while driving. Due to their size and speed, scooter riders are easy to miss, especially at night or during heavy traffic activity.
Check your blind spots twice before changing lanes, and never try to cut off a scooter. Also, maneuvering around a speeding bike can easily cause an accident. Keep your eyes on the road and avoid distractions.
