Paris Becomes First European Capital to Ban Floating Electric Scooters, Leaving Fans Disappointed and Critics Relieved
Point 1: Paris will ban self-service electric scooters from September 1, making it the first European capital to take such a measure. The decision has been celebrated by those who considered the scooters a nuisance, while fans of the popular mode of transportation are left desolate.
Point 2: The ban comes after an April referendum where almost 90 percent of residents voted in favor of banning rental scooters. While rental scooters will be prohibited, privately-owned scooters will still be allowed on Paris streets.
