Some signs are big and bold and leave no doubt what they are trying to convey. Think of a sign on a major freeway informing you of an upcoming fast food place or a place to fill your car up with gas. There is seldom any doubt where to exit. These signs are there to draw your attention to something. What about signs that get posted with the hope you will ignore or just gloss over them.
This is an example of a “Warning Sticker” on a Bird e-scooter. This sticker tells you what the rules of the road are and what the rules of the particular scooter you are riding on are. This is posted near the base of the handlebars in a place you are unlikely to look. The biggest takeaway for me is the terms license required and helmet required. Like motorcycles, this is a 2 wheeled mode of transportation and that leaves me to wonder what class of license is required. I also wonder what form of helmet is required.
The next item, and possibly the most important thing I’m looking for are instructions on how to ride this. They did a good job of telling me where I cannot ride it (sidewalks) and who can ride it (18+ years old) but I don’t know how to ride it or any of the actual rules of the road. This sign is placed on e-scooters and it’s these scooters that are one of the leading causes of hospital visits from motor vehicles right now. This is a really sneaky little sign!
