(ANSA) – ROME, JULY 24 – The first experiment in the world of education to drive electric scooters starts on July 26 from Rome and Milan. A project started by the consumer association Consumerismo No profit and the sharing company Dott, soon extended to other Italian cities, aimed at countering the scourge of the wild parking of scooters on roads and sidewalks and pushing users who use this means of transport to respect the rules of the Highway Code.
Specifically, starting from 26 July, users of the Dott sharing scooter service who in Rome and Milan will park outside the permitted areas or in an incorrect way in violation of the Highway Code will receive an “alert” directly on their smartphone, via Push notification through the operator’s app.
In case of repetition of the incorrect behavior, the second time they will suffer a penalty from the operator, but combined with a guide to parking and compliance with the rules. In the event of a third violation, they will be incentivized to attend a compulsory and free driving course organized in the autumn of 2022. Conversely, the customer’s account will be suspended with the consequent impossibility of using the sharing services.
“Promoting a correct use of shared mobility is our main objective, and we are proud to be the first to share this project in Europe, which will start in Rome and Milan” says the president of Consumerismo, Luigi Gabriele.
