Tips for riding a scooter safely around Dallas

Ride-sharing scooters have become all the rage in recent months. Dallas recently approved an ordinance that allows companies like Bird to have scooters around the city for people to rent and ride. 

People on scooters need to be careful with where and how they ride. However, it is also the responsibility of drivers to be aware of people on scooters to avoid collisions

Tips for people on scooters

If you plan on renting a scooter, then you should prepare for a fun way to get around the city. However, you also need to be cautious because many drivers have not become acclimated to scooters yet. First, you should always wear protective gear, such as wrist guards, closed-toe shoes and a helmet, when on a scooter. Be mindful of traffic any time you need to cross an intersection. You never want to wear headphones to listen to music while on your scooter because you need to be aware of everything around you. With headphones, you may not be able to hear ambulances or other vehicles approaching. You always want to ride at a safe speed. If this will be your first time on a scooter, then you should start slowly and accelerate as you gradually become more comfortable. 

Tips for motorists when scooters are nearby

Drivers in Dallas need to be aware that Bird scooters are rolling out, and they need to be appropriately cautious. When you want to make a right-hand turn at an intersection, you need to stop fully in case a person on a scooter suddenly darts across the street. While people on scooters need to approach intersections cautiously, you also need to be wary that not all scooters will slow down. You need to be particularly vigilant of scooters when driving at night. People riding scooters may not wear highly visible clothing, so you need to be ready to suddenly stop at intersections.
