When crossing the road, you should:-
Plan your journey so that, if you can, you use Zebra crossings or, better, Pelican (lights controlled) crossings.
Take special care and if possible, cross at the same time as pedestrians - but don't be first onto the road.
Always use dropped kerbs when moving off the pavement when there is no marked crossing.
Always approach kerbs at right angles to climb or descend.
Not try to negotiate a kerb higher than your scooter manufacturer’s recommendations.
Not drive onto the road from between or behind parked vehicles.
