Enthusiasm for shared electric scooters is readily apparent on the University of Arkansas campus as thousands of people have taken rides since Spin launched on Nov. 9. To date, no major accidents involving e-scooters have been reported. Nonetheless, students' safety remains the top priority for the University of Arkansans.  

Starting today, Monday, Dec. 2, the U of A Office for Sustainability will be giving away helmets to e-scooter riders and cyclists who stop by the office. The helmets will be given out at the Sustainability House, 238 Harmon Ave., during regular office hours Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Bell helmets has generously sponsored the giveaway with 50 high quality multi-sport style helmets. The helmets are one-size-fits-all in a mat gray color finish. The helmets will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis while supplies last.
