Electric scooters are fun and easy to operate. Aside from that, they’re good for the environment because they help reduce harmful CO2 emissions and traffic congestion.
In Giethoorn, but it applies to the whole of the Netherlands, the Dutch are known to be fans of cycling as every city and village here uses bikes as one of their modes of transportation here. Now, the Dutch are exploring electric scooters as an additional transportation option.
If you’re in the Netherlands and you plan to tour a city via an electric scooter, you won’t have a hard time. There are electric scooter rentals here! If you’re renting an electric scooter, here are things to keep in mind:
Always Prioritize Safety
The excitement you feel to ride an electric scooter and whiz your way around the beautiful cities or villages of Holland may be overwhelming that could cloud your judgment and put you at risk.
When you rent an electric scooter, you need to ensure you have everything you need, such as the helmet. Electric scooter rentals provide helmets for additional safety.
Before you hop on the scooter, make sure you strap on the helmet first. Next, pump the brakes to ensure they’re working properly before you unlock them.
Ride on Bike-Friendly Streets, Lanes, and Trails
In the Netherlands, these certainly won’t be a problem. The entire country is bike-friendly, which means there are designated lanes for bikes, where you can also ride your electric scooter.
If it’s your first time to ride one, it’s highly recommended you stick to bike lanes, before you take on more adventurous trails. You need to get the feel of the electric scooter first before anything else; therefore, take a tour around the city or village and allow yourself to get comfortable with the scooter before you go in a different direction.
Know Parking Rules
Parking rules may vary depending o the city or village that you’re in. But here’s one thing you need to remember, all pedestrian walkways must be clear. With that, you shouldn’t park the scooter anywhere that could block pedestrians and vehicles. Stay away from sidewalks, exits, and entrance ramps.
When you’re ready to park the e-scooter, find a place that’s out of the way, like bike racks.
