    IMPORTANT SAFETY TIPS

    As a scooter rider, key things to remember include:

    • Ride in the street. Scooter and bike riders should ride in the street with the flow of traffic, using bike lanes where possible.
    • Don't get stranded. Under City regulations for the six-month demonstration, scooter vendors are required to deactivate the devices between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Keep this in mind when planning your rides.
    • Be visible. Never assume a driver sees you. Ride at least three feet from the curb so you are in the line of sight of other road users.
    • Be predictable. Follow all traffic laws, including stopping when the traffic light is red. Avoid weaving and riding erratically.
    • Ride smart. Don't carry objects that keep you from controlling the scooter or bike. Don't be distracted or ride with headphones. Don't drink and ride. Don't ride more than one person per device.
    • Wear a helmet. Permitted vendors are required to give you a free helmet upon request.

     

    Motor vehicle drivers should keep the following in mind:

    • Share the road. People riding scooters and bikes are allowed on the road.
    • Don't drive distracted. Be alert and watch out for slower moving road users like people on scooters and bikes.
    • Pass safely. Drivers may pass people on scooters and bikes if there are at least three feet between the motor vehicle and the rider. Where possible, change lanes to pass.
    • Look before you leave. When you park on the street, check your blind spot to make sure you will not hit a scooter or bike rider when you open your door.
    • Be patient. Everyone on the road wants to get where they are going quickly and safely.
