Lime, a shared smart mobility provider of electric scooters, is working to promote scooter safety throughout the City of Miami’s District 2, hosting its inaugural First Ride Academy at Miami’s Bayfront Park. The interactive scooter safety workshop will teach new and existing riders about safe and proper scooter riding, including abiding by traffic laws, inspecting an electric scooter before riding (e.g., brakes, accelerator, etc.) and properly parking the scooter. Attendees will test their knowledge by riding a Lime scooter through a road course and all graduates will receive free Lime helmets.
The premise of the workshop is grounded in the idea that simply wearing a helmet isn’t enough, with recent studies on scooter safety showing that first-time riders may have a greater risk of injury due to lack of experience. To directly address this concern and as part of Lime’s continued commitment to public safety and education, Lime is investing over $3 million to help empower users to ride responsibly with its Respect the Ride campaign. This includes execution of first ride academies in all markets where Lime operates and a pledge to distribute more than 250,000 free helmets to riders across the globe in the coming months.
