Scooters are becoming an increasingly cool way to get to school, going by the demand for scooter training among the Wellington region’s schools.
Scooter safety training is being offered this year to schools in Trentham, Epuni, Churton Park, Te Aro and Masterton.The scooter training is part of the Wellington region’s School Travel Plan Programme, a joint partnership between schools, territorial authorities and the regional council, supporting communities to promote safe and active travel.
“Helping kids to become street smart gives parents more confidence to let their kids travel independently. And the more kids who scoot, walk, or cycle to school, the less traffic congestion at school gates and on our roads, which is good for other road users and the environment.”
