Mastering the Art of Signaling on an Electric Scooter

While cruising on your electric scooter, it's essential to have full control over the vehicle and prioritize safety. One crucial aspect in ensuring a smooth and accident-free ride is using proper signals while on the road. Lack of communication can lead to collisions, which is why it's necessary to inform others about your intentions, especially at intersections and while negotiating turns. So, how exactly should one signal on an electric scooter?

There are three primary methods of signaling while riding an electric scooter:

  1. Integrated Turn Signals: Some high-end electric scooters come with built-in turn signals that can be activated through a button on the handlebar. Similar to a carrying vehicle, hit the button in the direction you need to go, and the built-in indicator light will flash, alerting others around you.

  2. Hand Signals: In case your electric scooter lacks dedicated turn signals, relying on hand signals is crucial. Use your left arm extended straight out to indicate a left turn, and raise your left arm with the forearm pointing upwards at a 90-degree angle for a right turn. If you're halting or reducing speed, extend your left arm downwards with your palm facing back to signal a stop.

  3. Aftermarket Add-Ons: There are additional aftermarket turn signals available for electric scooters, including LED light strips and wearable turn signal devices. These products can be installed on the rear of your electric scooter, significantly increasing visibility in low-light conditions.

Remember, signaling should not be an afterthought; it's vital for your safety as well as that of others around you. Electric scooters are becoming more prominent on roads, and learning to signal accurately will ensure a safer and smoother ride.
