E-bike Safety
SMUSD is working with the City of San Marcos and local law enforcement partners to bring greater awareness and education to our students and families about electric bike (e-bike) safety.
E-bikes are more popular than ever and as their popularity increases, education about e-bike safety is of the utmost importance.

Please familiarize yourself and your children with the rules of the road and important safety facts, for example:
Did you know?
  • Riders age 17 and younger must wear a helmet.
  • It is illegal to carry passengers on your e-bike unless it features an additional permanent seat.
  • Sidewalks are meant for pedestrians, not e-bikes.
  • Riding against the flow of traffic is prohibited.
You can find this safety information and more on the new e-bike webpage: http://www.san-marcos.net/e-bikes 
You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more e-bike safety tips: @SanMarcosUSD
Let's work together to keep our SMUSD students, and San Marcos, safe and e-bike accident-free!
