Avoid wet and icy conditions, speed bumps, sand, gravel and anything that could cause your tires to skid. Never ride at night.
Electric pocket bikes should not be used by children under the age of 12, and use of the faster "gas powered" types of pocket bikes should be restricted to even more mature riders. Parents should always exercise judgment in determining the rider's individual maturity, skill and ability to follow rules before allowing their child to use these products.
At a minimum, always wear an ANSI, SNELL, or ATSM approved helmet, and elbow and kneepads when riding an electric pocket bike. Special protective equipment is available for use with such products and is recommended especially if you are riding a faster, gas-powered pocket bike. Wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles). Never ride barefoot or in sandals. Keep shoelaces out of the way of wheels.
Make sure your pocket bike is ready before you ride. Check your brakes before starting out. Tighten all bolts and make sure the handlebars are locked in place before riding.
Hold handlebars at all times. Learn how tight a turn you can comfortably make. Get used to applying the brakes.
Like any moving product, riding a pocket bike involves risk. Always exercise caution and common sense.

Pocket bikes should only be ridden in controlled environments on smooth surfaces.
