With summer officially here in Baltimore, more people will be out and about in town. And, with the rise in popularity of the ride-sharing e-scooters, more of these electric ride sharing devices will be out on our streets and sidewalks as well.

Helmet use is particularly important when using e-scooters, with only 4.4% of riders reporting using helmets. Head injuries account for nearly half of reported injuries.

Renter's rights are outlined in the usage agreement upon registration. While these agreements may seem daunting, users should read them over before using the scooter.

Use common sense and common safety tips when riding an e-scooter, such at following traffic laws, riding at an appropriate speed, and wearing bright clothing to be more visable to cars.
