When you arrive at the scooter you have booked and you find a fine, don´t worry. Keep it inside the seat and make your trip without worrying.
At eCooltra we register all the trips our users make and we can identify the user who has parked incorrectly. This user will receive the sanction.
What happens when I break the regulations and receive a fine?
During the period that you use the scooter you are responsible for obeying the regulations, since you park it until another user uses the scooter again.
Our team will identify the responsible user of the fine and take actions accordingly.
