The Right Way to Ride
As the e-mobility movement has grown, we’ve recognized the importance of keeping our community as safe and well-informed as possible. We know you’re itching to get out there, but here are a few things you should know before you do.
Before You Go
The Easiest Way to Save Your Life
Don’t be a knucklehead. Wearing a helmet is the simplest way to avoid serious injury while using e-transportation. We know you’re way too cool to fall, but sometimes accidents are beyond our control! And if style is your concern, look no further than our new Inboard Helmet.
Never assume that people see you! Cars and pedestrians may not be expecting you to zip by, so always make an effort to be as visible as possible. LEDs are standard on Inboard products, so make sure to have them on, and wearing lighter, more visible clothing can’t hurt.
Maintain a close relationship with your transportation device. Before riding, make sure everything is in place and operating properly, and if you hear or feel something abnormal while riding, stop! Take a closer look, and give us a call if you need a hand.
Always Ride At Your Level
Believe it or not, our products are not designed to break land speed records. Always ride only to the level at which you’re comfortable, and resist the urge to push yourself too far. We program our e-vehicles with multiple riding modes for a reason, so USE THEM!
On The Road
The Rules of the Road
Electric ridables can make you feel pretty special, but you’re not above the law. Imagine that you're in a little car; never ride on the sidewalk, only travel on the correct side of the road, always yield to pedestrians, and adhere to traffic signs and signals no matter what.
The (Unwritten) Rules of the Road
Always be cautious, courteous, and respectful. Road obstructions, like potholes or debris, will affect you much more than a car, so keep your eyes open! And though you might be faster than traffic, you don’t have to flaunt it; be exceedingly cautious when passing vehicles and don’t cut off or swerve around traffic.
Ever yelled at someone for not using their blinker? Don't be that person. Use your indicators if you have them, and always use hand signals if you don't.
Keep your eyes and hands focused on what you’re doing. Your selfie, phone call, and coffee can wait.
