JAF inspires Australian club e-scooter safety content


To promote e-scooter safety and awareness in Australia, the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ), member of the Australian Automobile Association (AAA), has joined forces with the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF), leveraging JAF's expertise to inspire impactful safety content.

With a membership base of 1.7 million in Queensland alone, RACQ is taking proactive measures to raise awareness about e-scooter safety ahead of the holiday season in Australia.

By leveraging existing video content from JAF, RACQ has built member content that aims to remind Australians about the importance of familiarising themselves with e-scooter tips.

JAF conducted tests on various e-scooters in different scenarios, highlighting the risks associated with riding an e-scooter. According to RACQ Principal Technical Researcher Andrew Kirk, riders need to be aware of the laws and ride safely. The video content from JAF serves as an educational tool, providing safety guidelines to Australian riders.

The collaboration comes at a time when e-scooters are gaining popularity as an urban transport choice. RACQ's decision to draw upon JAF's content underscores the relevance of best practices internationally when promoting responsible and safe e-scooter usage.
