After the success of the first edition held at the Aci Vallelunga Safe Driving Center in Rome, the launch of the course dedicated to the safe driving of electric scooters promoted by Link, a company of the sharing scooter service, took place this morning in Lainate (Milan). most advanced in its category, designed by Superpedestrian, the leading micromobility tech company released by MIT in Boston (Massachussets Institute of Technology).
The technology implemented by Link and the focus on safety have facilitated the union and the creation of collaboration with the Aci-Sara Safe Driving Centers which for some time have hinged on the close link between education and training, in line with what Link is already doing about the correct use of its vehicles. Aci-Sara and Link pursue the common goal of training and educating users to drive safely, respectful of all those on the road, with a view to environmental sustainability.
“The partnership with the Aci-Sara centers has made it possible to launch this important initiative in Milan as well, which represents a real turning point in our sector. It is the first time that a private company has decided to put itself at the service of citizens and launch a safe driving course for electric scooters on a national scale ”- commented Maurizio Pompili, Operation Manager Link Italy. “The phenomenon of electric micro-mobility, which exploded especially during the last year, can no longer do without an education program aimed at users of the electric scooter in respect of all road users”.

Easy, light, sustainable, the electric scooter is not a toy, however, the rules exist and must be respected to make it possible to coexist on the street and in safety of different vehicles. In Milan, all the companies that offer sharing must contribute with the Municipality to training and raising awareness among citizens.
