A brand new consumer product safety commission study shows that in the course of a year, 10-thousand people went to the emergency room because of motorized scooter accidents. Tuesday, the CPSC announced a voluntary recall of 246,000 Razor Brand Electric Scooters because of that weak weld that can cause the handlebar to fall off.
Fisher Price is voluntarily recalling 34,000 of its Power Wheels scooters and mini-bikes because the tires can rupture if you overinflate them, injuring your face or hands. Both companies say they have strong safety records and that they brought the problems to the government's attention.
