Worthing school considers banning scooters after complaints
5:10pm Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
Sussex has a new road menace – and the culprit is 3ft nothing.
Scooters have proved such a problem in an area of Worthing that children could now be banned from scooting to school.
Thomas A Becket Middle School in Glebeside Avenue is considering banning scooter use because of complaints from residents.
Headteacher John Gadd has written to parents urging them to make sure their children use the toys safely.
He said: “We have received a number of complaints about some of the children who scoot to school.
“Please talk with your child over the half-term break about safe scooting.
“Unless this improves I may have to say that children cannot scoot to school, for their own and other road users’ safety.”
Earlier this year children from two Brighton schools were banned from riding scooters at school.
Moulsecoomb Primary School in Lewes Road prohibited the two-wheeled scooters from the playground because of health and safety fears.
