Micromobility operator Neuron is launching a new ScootSafe campaign in the UK to refresh riders on e-scooter safety over the festive period.
The ScootSafe sessions will be held across the country in the lead up to the Christmas holidays, with Neuron safety ambassadors on hand to remind users about safe riding rules and the importance of being responsible.
Riders will have the opportunity to earn rewards such as free credits for future rides by taking a short safety briefing which has been co-created with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
It takes less than five minutes to complete and will equip participants with the knowledge and confidence to ride Neuron’s e-scooters safely.
Neuron has also produced a series of videos that will be boosted on social media, while it will be donating free monthly passes to local charities and good causes to help volunteers get around the city.
“Our e-scooters are providing a great way to get around, but it is so important that riders are responsible and not complacent this Christmas,” said Neuron Regional Manager George Symes.
“We are taking the opportunity to remind our riders of the safe riding rules and we invite members of the public to visit our festive ScootSafe events to learn more about responsible riding.
“With more people expected to be out and about enjoying themselves over the Christmas holidays, we are reminding all of our riders to never drink and ride, don’t ride on pavements, park responsibly and please wear the helmet provided on our e-scooters.
“And as Christmas is a time of giving, with many people selflessly giving their time and energy to help those less fortunate, Neuron will be donating free monthly passes to good causes across the cities we operate in. We hope these can go some way to making this Christmas a special one for those who deserve it most.”
