Riding Bird Scooters Safely After Dark: What You Need to Know

The answer is yes, with Bird scooters available for use 24/7 in most cities where they operate, your nocturnal adventures just got easier, and more fun.

However, there's more to night riding than just hopping on and taking off. Safety is paramount when riding an electric scooter after dusk. Here's what you need to know to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey.

Visibility Is Key
When the sun goes down, visibility decreases — making it crucial for riders and their scooters to be well-lit. Bird scooters are equipped with front and rear lights to help make you more visible to other road users. It's also a good idea to wear reflective clothing or accessories, and consider additional lights or reflective gear to enhance your visibility.

Know the Laws
Before riding at night, familiarize yourself with local regulations regarding electric scooters. Some areas might have specific rules about night riding, including the requirement of additional lighting or reflective clothing. Failure to comply with these laws can result in fines or even the confiscation of the scooter.

Ride Responsibly
riding an electric scooter Ride Responsibly riding an electric scooter at night comes with increased risks, so it's important to ride responsibly. Stick to designated bike lanes when available, avoid busy roads when possible, and always be alert to your surroundings. Riding under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not only illegal but also significantly increases the risk of accidents.

Check the Scooter
Before taking off, ensure the scooter is in good working condition. Check the lights, brakes, and tires to confirm everything is functioning properly. A well-maintained scooter is a safer one, especially in the dark.

Plan Your Route
Knowing your route in advance can prevent last-minute decisions in poorly lit areas and keep you on safer, well-lit paths. Use the Bird app to plan your trip and identify any potential issues, like construction zones or road closures, to avoid surprises along the way.

By following these guidelines, you can safely take advantage of Bird's around-the-clock service and enjoy the convenience of electric scooters at night. Remember, your safety is in your hands, so gear up, stay vigilant, and ride responsibly under the stars.
