Safety Rules and Tips: How to Keep Yourself Safe?
Updated: Mar 6
Big cities are like a battlefield where every user "fights" with his/her own means of transport. Every day there are more and more different means of transport that must coexist on the roads, but in order to make this coexistence possible, users must apply certain road safety regulations.
Users of electric scooters, such as those of the rest of the means of transport, must fulfil some requirements to facilitate and improve the safety conditions on the roads.
Here we list a few factors that will help you keep yourself and the rest of the vehicles safe and that should be taken into account when driving the electric scooter:
Electrico Scooter Model
Each model has its own design and features and is adapted to meet specific needs, such as speed, distance range, safety, etc. These features emphasize and improve different aspects of the trip.
It is also very important that the choice of the model is based on the type of terrain of the trip and the weight of the user, in order to reduce any risk and increase the level of safety when driving.
Main Protection Standards
To ensure greater safety while driving the electric scooter, it is essential to comply with the main regulations regarding the equipment and the number of passengers.
On the other hand, it is essential to know that the electric scooter is a means of transport designed to be used only by one person. Therefore, users should not transport a second passenger.
According to regulations and limitations in many European countries, due to the large number of electric scooters circulating in the cities, electric scooters must be driven in bike lanes and never on sidewalks or restricted areas.
Apart from the permitted areas of driving, users must take into account and must respect traffic lights, traffic directions and traffic signs in order to facilitate driving and minimize risks both for themselves and for the rest of the vehicles and the pedestrians.
The use of the lights is mandatory while driving the electric scooter. In addition, to drive at night, users must not only have the lights on, but also wear reflective clothing to be noticed from a long distance.
Taking into account the weather conditions when driving the electric scooter is essential.
Driving in the rain or on frozen and slippery surfaces is very dangerous and can be an inconvenience that becomes a fatal accident for both the user of the scooter, as for another driver or pedestrian.
It is better that under adverse weather conditions the user does not use the electric scooter, in order to avoid any risk or accident.
Safety is a factor that depends mainly on users´ behaviour and how much they respect the traffic regulations. If all these rules are taken into account, the journey with your electric scooter will be much safer and more enjoyable.
