Well, the question is asked by a beginner, I'd bet money that 90% of all outdoor roller skating isn't racing in a "drone like" manner going nowhere, but is in fact people just tooling along dancing, so with that in mind, never put both feet together below yourself, it's to easy to touch wheels or rollover some impediment or another, only one out of eight wheels locked up will put you to ground, if you insist on skating on just one skate at a time, keep your eyes on the road ahead, go around or over debris, it's simple, don't fall.
Wrist guards work, knee pads are useful if you fall to your knees a lot, and only fools fall to their knees a lot, clean the bearing frequently, the outdoors is dusty and oily and wet.
Practice flipping around backwards and applying the toe stops, instant stop.
