Rideable Rules in Queensland - What you need to know.

You might have noticed rideables in the CBD or around your suburb recently. Rideables are what you’d call personal mobility devices, which include e-scooters, e-skateboards and segways.

While they’re an efficient and environmentally-friendly way to get around, there are some road rules you must follow if you’re riding one:

  • Always wear a helmet. Use the one provided or your own.
  • Stay out of bike lanes – stick to footpaths instead.
  • Avoid riding on main or CBD roads.
  • Always give way to pedestrians, and share the path.
  • Don’t drink and ride.
  • You must travel at a speed that allows you to stop safely, especially around pedestrians.
  • Doubling up on rideables is not allowed. One rideable = one rider.

You must be at least 16 years of age to use a rideable, or 12 with adult supervision. It’s up to all of us to keep our roads and footpaths safe.

Rideables on main roads are a no-go Collapse
