Paris referendum to ban electric scooters

Published April 2, 2023 at 1:31 p.m

The vote is municipal, which means that EU citizens who do not have French citizenship will also be allowed to vote.

Mayor Anne Hidalgo has described them as a source of concern and tension, and advocates a ban.

The argument for the electric scooters has been their environmental friendliness, but this has been questioned by the opposing side.

Irresponsible use and an increasing number of accidents have led to the city’s politicians looking at the means of transport differently today than when the left in 2018 opened up to electric scooters in Paris as one of the first cities in the world.

The companies that rent out the electric scooters try to encourage young people to vote through free trips and payment of influencers. Turnout is expected to be low, which could favor the prohibition side.
