In just a few months, Bolt’s “green scooters” have replaced Slovnaft “yellow bikes” as the short-distance trip hit in Bratislava. Fun as these scooters are, some safety issues also need to be considered. Children or teenagers should only ride Bolt’s scooters after seeking permission from parents or from older siblings, or adult friends. And who also assume legal responsibility in the event of a collision, accident, or damage to the scooter. Here are some basic regulations for scooter riders:
– Road users must be minimum 15 years of age, all other ages can use cycle paths, country lanes, residential areas.
– Scooters can be driven on the right side of pavements. And only at walking speed, and taking care not to endanger or inconvenience pedestrians.
– One scooter = one person.
