And this is the right way.
On an e-scooter, you can travel at up to 20 km/h, which is faster than walking or riding a bicycle. So it's ideal for short journeys, especially from the front door to the bus stop, underground or suburban railway station. Or for a quick trip to a date, cinema, dinner or football stadium.
However, it is important to us that you are responsible when using the e-scooters and abide by the road traffic regulations and the rules for e-scooters:
- Please always ride an e-scooter alone. If, for example, two people ride on an e-scooter, the braking system will be disengaged.
- Please do not transport any objects on an e-scooter. There are no fastening possibilities and the objects can fall off the e-scooter and cause accidents.
- Always hold the handlebars firmly with both hands. Otherwise, a knock against the handlebars could lead to a fall due to e.g. bumps on the road or cycle path.
- Use the cycle paths and roads. If this is not possible and you have to use the pavement, please watch out for pedestrians.
- Park your e-scooters so that they are not in the way and do not obstruct anyone. The zones in which you should or should not park your e-scooter are marked green (park) or red (do not park) in our hvv switch app.
- On an e-scooter, 0.00% is the alcohol limit and you must be at least 18 years old.
- Children, also and especially, are not allowed on the e-scooters.
Follow Johan through his neighbourhood. Afterwards, you will know how to move smartly through Hamburg on an e-scooter. Responsibly, with consideration for others, but still nimble and smart.
However you move through Hamburg, move fairly.
