    Cool to use a scooter or scooters

    Hello,

    Are the singular and plural forms interchangeable here, please? :

    "It's forbidden to use a scooter/scooters on the pavement".

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Will

    Re: to use a scooter or scooters

    Yes, but "No scooters on the pavement!" would get the message across more quickly.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
