Paris to fine electric scooter users for pavement riding
Hire companies to be charged annual fee as city predicts massive growth in scooter use
Paris plans to regulate the use of electric scooters by introducing fines for riding on the pavement, designated parking spots, and an annual fee for the hire companies.
Before national legislation on electric scooters expected this year, the city council voted to impose fines of €135 (£115) for riding on the pavement and €35 for blocking the pavement with parked scooters. The city will also remove badly parked scooters.
