OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditionsdry, level surfaces
composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes 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. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
n Reduce your scooters speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
n Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
n Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
n If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
STREETS AND ROADWAYS
WARNING! You should not operate your scooter on public streets and roadways. Be
aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your scooter.
Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then
proceed with extreme caution.
NOTE: Safety accessories like fluorescent flags are available to order from your authorized Pride Provider.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, CURBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or drop-offs (curbs,
porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter climb or descend an obstacle that is
inordinately high. Serious personal injury and/or damage may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter proceed backward down any step, curb,
or other obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.

to ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
