NOTICE ON USE OF SCOOTERS
Usage of Honda Scooters on open public streets requires a M-1 license with the DMV. All riders of scooters who carry a valid license but do not have the M-1 endorsement will only be allowed to ride scooters only within the barricaded streets within the Formation area, Post Parade area or along the Parade Route and only while the streets have been officially closed off to public access. The Chair of your Committee will be responsible for notifying you which streets are closed off to through traffic and will also be responsible for confirming with you when the street closures have been implemented. These closures will be performed in accordance with the Tournaments Staging Plan with the City of Pasadena. If you have a valid M-1 license, you will be permitted to ride on City streets outside of these closed areas to perform any duties assigned to you by your Chair.
A REMINDER ABOUT SAFETY
Honda and Tournament will be stressing rider safety and proper vehicle usage. All riders and passengers on a Scooter and Side-by-Side must wear a helmet issued by Honda at all times. “If you have a head, put a helmet on it.” No hats, winter caps, do-rags or any other head gear may be worn beneath the helmet. Unless making a traffic signal or using hand signals to communicate with a parade entry, two hands should be used to operate your Scooter or Side-by-Side at all times. Scooters should transport a single rider and only personal items that will fit in the storage trunk of the vehicle. Do not attempt to carry folding chairs, tents, heaters, or other bulky items. Lastly, we ask that you obey all speed limits and practice defensive driving for your own safety and those around you.
VIOLATIONS OF THE TERMS OUTLINED ABOVE WILL RESULT IN THE FORFEIT OF SCOOTER PRIVILEGES..
