A Brief History of Scooters

Scooters were first known as a child's vehicle that dates back to before 1920. Although scooters were being manufactured, the majority of older children fashioned their own out of miscellaneous used parts. Remember the Little Rascal movies with scooters made out of produce crates? Technology and economies have changed since that time, allowing for today's mass produced scooters to offer a variety models and
to be sold at a reasonably low cost.

Modern scooters not only include the push scooters that require a little bit of exercise, but also feature electric and gas motorized models. Advancements in technology have made way for many physically impaired individuals to replace wheel chairs with motorized scooters and mobility scooters. Competition among scooter manufacturers has led to unique design features as well as miniature low-powered motorcycles.

Motorized scooters are considered low-power motor vehicles by many municipalities and are subject to state and local regulations. Some scooters meet Department of Transportation regulations for operation on streets and roadways while others are prohibited from being on the streets. Any time a motorized vehicle is introduced

into traffic areas, appropriate cautionary measures must be taken and proper safety gear must be worn.

Scooters can be easily found in the retail market, however not all retailers will carry all styles. Major discount or department stores may only carry a couple of models that they believe will be the most popular among their shoppers. A scooter store could specialize in a variety of recreational scooters, while another store will specialize in the mobility scooters. Retailers also offer scooter accessories to enhance the experience as well as replacement parts and service. Any style of scooter can be purchased online for retail pricing. The current market demand for scooters makes it hard to find them at wholesale prices for a single purchase, but there are many opportunities for an individual to become a scooter dealer.
