Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level sur- faces composed of concrete, blacktop or tarmac. However, Pride recognises that there will be times when you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass and gravel.
WARNING! Be sure your scooter is traveling perpendicular to any kerb you may be required to ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A. WARNING! Even though your scooter may be capable of handling greater obstacles, Pride recommends that you do not attempt to negotiate a kerb that has a height greater than 5 cm (2 in.).

Pride recommends that you do not disconnect the batteries when the scooter is in freewheel mode as this may interfere with the function of the controller.
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your scooter while traveling in a motor vehicle. The scooter should be stowed in the boot of a car or in the back of a truck or van with the batteries removed and/or properly secured.

Pride recommends that the scooter user deter- mine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching in the presence of a qualified attendant.
