Tips For Safely Turning Your E-Scooter
Riding an e-scooter is a fantastic way to explore Cape Canaveral, FL. As safety is our top priority at Orange Kik, we've put together these valuable tips to help you turn your e-scooter safely:
- Slow Down Before Turning: Reduce your speed before making a turn to maintain better control and stability.
- Signal Your Intentions: Use hand signals to indicate your turns to fellow riders and pedestrians, promoting safety on the road.
- Check Your Surroundings: Always check for oncoming traffic, pedestrians, or obstacles before initiating a turn.
- Wide Turns for Stability: For better balance, make wider turns rather than sharp ones, especially if you're new to e-scooters.
- Avoid Sudden Turns: Abrupt turns can lead to accidents. Make gradual turns, especially when navigating tight corners.
- Lean Gently: Lean your body slightly in the direction of the turn to assist with balance and control.
- Brake Judiciously: Moderate your speed before the turn and use the brakes smoothly if needed during the turn.
- Stay Alert: Keep an eye on your surroundings and be prepared to react to any unexpected situations.
- Use Dedicated Bike Lanes: Whenever possible, use dedicated bike lanes or pathways for safer turns.
- Practice Makes Perfect: If you're new to e-scooters, practice turning in a safe and open area before hitting the roads.
