Safety

At Atlanta Private Scooters, safety is our number one priority. While we want you to have fun, please abide by the safety guidelines outlined below.

BEFORE OPERATING THE VEHICLE

1. INSPECT VEHICLE

Inspect the trueness of the wheels, safe operation of the throttle, brakes and lights, the condition of the frame, sufficient battery charge power and any sign of damage, unusual or excessive wear, or other open and obvious mechanical problem/maintenance need.  Please do not ride the vehicle if there are any noticeable issues and immediately notify Atlanta Private Scooters.

2. DO NOT OPERATE IF UNDER THE INFLUENCE

Please use another mode of safe transportation if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

 

3. REQUEST HELMET

Helmets are available upon request. We strongly recommend ALL riders wear a helmet, but it is not a requirement for those 18 years or older. It is required by law that anyone under the age of 18 wear a helmet that is properly fastened.

4. WEAR EYE PROTECTION

We recommend all riders wear some form of eye protection, like sunglasses. This will prevent insects or debris from getting into eyes of riders while operating the vehicle.

 

WHILE OPERATING THE VEHICLE

1. RIDE SOLO

Atlanta Private Scooters are designed for one rider only. More than one rider will throw off the balance of the scooter and increase the risk of serious injury to both riders.

2. PUT PHONE AWAY

Riding while using a mobile device will not only cause a distraction for the rider, it will also prevent the rider from using proper hand placement on the scooter handlebars.

3. FOLLOW ROAD SAFETY RULES

Please stay up to date on your local city traffic laws. All riders must yield the right-of-way to all pedestrians and human-powered vehicles at all times and give an audible signal before passing a pedestrian. Do not operate the vehicle on any portion of a street or highway that has an established speed limit of fifty-five miles per hour or more.

4. START SLOW AND VIEW AREA

Start with a lower speed to inspect surroundings. Cluttered pathways, pedestrian traffic and unsafe road conditions can increase the risk of serious injury to the rider and nearby pedestrians.

5. BE AWARE OF WEATHER CONDITIONS

Rain will cause roadways to become slippery and unsafe for scooter travel. High winds will also throw off the balance of the scooter. Please do not operate the vehicle if the weather becomes unsafe.

6. KEEP BOTH HANDS ON HANDLEBARS

Proper placement of both hands on handlebars ensures that the rider has full control of the vehicle at all times.
