I I . S A F E T Y PRODUCT SAFETY SYMBOLS The symbols below are used on the Travel Scooter to identify warnings, mandatory actions, and prohibited actions. It is very important for you to read and understand them completely. Read and follow the information in the owner’s manual.
I I . S A F E T Y Do not allow unsupervised children to play near the Travel Scooter while the batteries are charging. Do not remove anti-tip wheels. Do not use a cell phone, walkie/talkie, laptop, or other radio transmitter while operating.

Travel Scooter. MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity for your Travel Scooter. Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
I I . S A F E T Y When climbing an incline, try to keep your Travel Scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment dial to the slowest setting and driving in the forward direction only.
I I . S A F E T Y When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 1 and 2. This shifts the center of gravity of you and your Travel Scooter toward the front of the Travel Scooter for improved stability. NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving forward, the powered Travel Scooter may "rollback"...
Your Travel Scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, 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 Travel Scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and gravel.
This prevents the Travel Scooter from gaining unwanted momentum should the manual freewheel lever inadvertently be released while driving the Travel Scooter. WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not disconnect the batteries when the Travel Scooter is in freewheel mode as this may interfere with the function of the controller.
If you will be transporting your Travel Scooter during travel, you may find it necessary to use a vehicle- mounted lift system or elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the warnings, instructions, specifications, and safety information set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your Travel Scooter while traveling in a motor vehicle. The Travel Scooter should be stowed in the trunk of a car or in the back of a truck or van with the batteries removed and/or properly secured.
Bending to the side while seated creates the risk of tipping. It is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the Travel Scooter from tipping. Pride recommends that the Travel Scooter user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching in the presence of a qualified attendant.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your Travel Scooter in any way not authorized by Pride. WARNING!
