Paris: E-scooter rental should be banned – Panorama

In Paris, rentable e-scooters should soon disappear from the cityscape. In a citizen survey, the majority of residents spoke out in favor of a ban on e-scooter rentals in the city. 98 percent of the votes cast called for abolition, eleven percent were against. Although only 7.46 percent of the approximately 1.3 million registered residents took part in the vote, Mayor Anne Hidalgo spoke of a “victory for local democracy”. Irrespective of the turnout, Paris considers the outcome of the citizens’ survey to be binding.

It was impressive that around 100,000 residents went to the polls, Hidalgo said. It was also the mayor who initiated the survey and made no secret of the fact that she would rather see the scooters banned from the city. However, the use of private e-scooters should not be restricted.

Three rental companies in Paris are currently offering around 15,000 e-scooters, with which tourists and locals are often quite careless: there are accidents and chaos on the sidewalks. The license for the landlords expires at the end of August. “From September 1st there will be no more rental scooters in Paris,” said Anne Hidalgo on Sunday evening in the town hall. However, providers should not accept the end of e-scooters in the metropolis of Paris without resistance. You had already expressed concern that there would also be bans elsewhere.
