Let’s make eRiding safe – Letter to the Editor

A Yanchep resident has written to Yanchep News Online about e-Rideables. File picture

Dear Yanchep News Online,

The Road Safety Commission advertised the rules about eRideable safety in May 2023 (National Road Safety Week).

Here is a recap of those rules that will keep you, your children, the elderly and all members of our community safe.

Helmets are mandatory, 16+ minimum age, 10km/h speed on footpaths, 25 km/h on shared bike paths, shared paths and local roads, one person per device, lights and reflectors.

Additionally, I would suggest that all riders have a bell on their bikes.

A courtesy to let walkers know you are coming along.

Let’s make every eRide safe.
