THIS CAREFULLY - DRIVING EVEN SMALL, LOW-POWERED VEHICLES CAN
DANGEROUS. ENSURE ALL NECESSARY STEPS ARE TAKEN TO ENSURE
SAFE OPERATION OF YOUR VEHICLE.
- Do not allow the
use of the vehicle on public roads and paths; use only on private
ground with the permission of the landowner - be aware of your local
road traffic laws and keep to them.
- Never allow the
vehicle to be used where it may come into contact with full size
vehicular road traffic or with general pedestrian traffic.
- Always supervise
the vehicle's use and ensure drivers are properly instructed in how to
use it, especially in use of the brakes.
- Always judge the
capabilties of the driver and the vehicle and where you feel necessary
ensure the riders
wear appropriate protective equipment such as helmet, gloves and
protective pads. Ensure there is no trailing clothing or hair etc to
get entangled in the moving parts.
- Do not allow use of
the vehicle in the dark or in other conditions where the driver can not
see clearly or be seen clearly.
- Regularly check all
screws and nuts and tighten/lock as required. Check the structural
integrity of bonded joints. Keep tyres inflated to the pressure stated
on the tyre. Keep bearings, gears and chains lubricated.
- Regularly check the
function of the brakes and steering mechanisms and adjust as required.
- Ensure all motor
and gearbox covers are fitted and secure before vehicle operation. Take
great care if making adjustments in or near the motors when the motors
are hot - it is best to allow hot motors to cool before working in
- Consider carefully
the area/track on which the vehicle is to be run. If passes will be
made close to solid obstacles consider fitting skid boards, such as at
prominent hard edges, gate posts, wall corners etc. Consider the
at corners should the vehicle not make the turn - always judge
the capabilities of the drivers!
the drivers never to drive at pedestrians, to always slow
their vehicle when pedestrians look as if they may be in the
way and to slow the vehicle to make turns.
