Rideable campaign highlights safety concerns

A ‘No Go’ rideable campaign running during April in the Brisbane CBD will remind users to give way to pedestrians, wear a helmet and not ride on main roads or on bike lanes.

Messages will be shown on outdoor panels located on 40 busy streets in the city as well as in Central Station.

Laws introduced in December last year expanded the types of personal mobility devices that can be used in Queensland. The resulting popularity of e-scooters and e-skateboards has  caused public concern about rideable users disobeying the road rules, especially in the CBD.

TMR’s education campaign will communicate the following reminders to rideable users:

  • Rideables without helmets are a no go – use those provided with hired rideables or use your own. It’s the law.
  • Rideables in bike lanes are a no go – stick to footpaths in the CBD. It’s the law.
  • Rideables on main or CBD roads are a no go – stick to paths and keep every-one safe. It’s the law.
  • Always give way to pedestrians – share the path when using rideables. It’s the law.

These messages follow on from a social media campaign that ran in December 2018 promoting the new rideable laws.
