Paris can’t stand it: electric scooters, no matter how environmentally friendly, need to be standardized

The electric scooter that parisians love and hate has a new rule: love, because it is small and flexible, convenient to carry, environmental protection and clean, has become the only choice for many people in the city.But barbaric growth, overspeed overload phenomenon is serious;Stop at will and obstruct the route of the disabled especially;There is no warning, can only rely on Shouting to remind pedestrians to avoid, accidentally caused by non-motor vehicle road panic.Starting Tuesday, July 30, the city of Paris officially banned electric scooters from parking on the sidewalk, leaving them parked on the side of the road like cars and motorcycles.This is just a prelude.The French transport minister has promised to ban electric scooters from the pavements when the new term begins in September.

“Electric scooters are banned from all pavements in Paris. They must park on both sides of the road and share fixed parking Spaces with cars and two-wheeled vehicles…With regard to speed, I ask all operators of electric scooters to reduce their speed in Paris to a maximum of 20 km/h, to a maximum of 8 km/h in the heart of the city with the highest concentration of pedestrians, and now they are reaching a maximum speed of 25 km/h.”

The city of Paris initially championed the idea of pollution-free travel, but troubles enailed: according to le monde’s latest figures, there are now more than 20,000 electric scooters in Paris, backed by more than 10 companies.”We think 20,000 is too much, it’s too much,” Mr Hidalgo said.This service creates disorder and great administrative difficulties in a city like Paris.

Against this backdrop, the city of Paris decided in April to levy a “public space occupancy fee” on the scooters, whether on two or three wheels, for autonomous driving without a fixed parking space.And you have to report the traffic to the city every three hours.
