  4. Riding: Stay in designated bike lanes or on the right side of the road, following all traffic rules and regulations. Keep a safe distance from pedestrians and other vehicles.
  5. Braking: To slow down or stop, gently squeeze the brake lever on the handlebar. Be aware of your surroundings and adjust your speed accordingly.
  6. Turning: Use the built-in signals to indicate your intention to turn, and make smooth, controlled turns by leaning slightly in the direction you want to go.
  7. Obstacles: Watch out for obstacles on the road such as potholes, debris, or uneven surfaces. Slow down and maneuver carefully to avoid any potential hazards.
  8. Parking: When you reach your destination, find a designated parking zone indicated in the Sunset Rides app. End your ride on the app, and ensure the scooter is properly parked and secure.
