The city, with the help of the Downtown Alliance, has been taking to the streets to spread the word about scooter safety. Last week a team of police officers and street ambassadors passed out informational materials while informing the public on best practices for safe scooting. These include:
One person per scooter.
Yield to people walking, bicycling and people with disabilities.
Wear a helmet for safety.
Don’t ride on parkland.
Don’t ride while under the influence of intoxicants.
Park scooters with care.
The city’s Dockless Mobility Program website has more information, and you can find pictures of the street team jaunt around downtown on Flickr and Facebook.
