The mayor of Paris is considering an outright ban on electric scooter rental schemes in Paris. Do you favour a ban? Take part in our poll and share your views.


In Paris accidents have climbed as the popularity of electric scooters has soared, with 22 deaths in Paris last year, up from seven in 2020.

Like many big cities, Paris is wrestling with how to enforce safe practices for the zippy devices, promoted as a non-polluting alternative to cars or crowded public transport.

Mayor Anne Hidalgo is apparently leaning towards a ban that would make Paris one of just a few major cities to outlaw free-float e-scooter fleets.
