"Elsparkcyklarna who made their debut with the blatantly over the last year annoys real mad many frenchmen."
"Now we are preparing for the government a bill to reduce the number of accidents with the electric newfangledness."
"A quick and easy mode of transport for the eco-conscious urbanite, for hire through a mobile application for each one way, and that takes up significantly less space in traffic than a car? Or an abomination that encourages traffic, parked helter-skelter on the sidewalks, and which, moreover, is liable to lead to serious collisions with pedestrians?"
"the Residents of many of the world's major cities are split in two camps, either for or against elsparkcyklarna, which was launched on a broad front in 2018. A video clip from in January was the icing on the cake when it spread among the French users of social media, the clip shows how a elsparkcykelförare are moving, on a highway outside of Paris in the breathtaking 85 kilometres an hour."
"the French government has obviously picked up that the question is loaded, and is preparing to tighten the rules for how and where vehicles may be driven, writes Le Parisien."
"is Prohibited on sidewalks"
"Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo has been in the forefront and imposed a fine of 135 euros, corresponding to around sek 1 500, for those who run elsparkcyklar on the sidewalks. Now the government wants to ban to cover the whole country. The one who for some reason need to cross a sidewalk with a elsparkcykel, for example, to bring it into a building, may continue to be content to lead it with the hand, according to the bill, which the magazine has taken part of."
"A speed limit to be introduced at a maximum of 25 kilometres an hour, and in the cities, the drivers must keep to the bike lanes if available, and run on roads where the speed limit does not exceed 50 kilometres an hour. In addition, it should be illegal to take out elsparkcykel on the roads outside the tätbebyggt area."
"Grégoire Hénin, vice-president of a trade association for the electrical mikrofordon, elsparkcyklar and hoverboards, is sympathetic to tightening."
"– It is a very good idea to establish rules, because it has become pure the wild west after the plethora of operators offering självuthyrning of elsparkcyklar, says Hénin to Le Parisien."
"– The new rules will help to educate the users, " he says."
"Many French children will be enough to dismiss the proposal of a minimum age of eight years, at the same time that many parents will be able to refer to an upcoming rule that drivers younger than twelve must wear a helmet, according to the proposal. It should also be a ban on travel to more than one person per elsparkcykel."
"the Second proposal on the new rules is the prohibition against wearing headphones while driving, requirements on the bell and the back - and framljus, and reflective vest when running at night or twilight."
"The new rules are intended to take effect from september."
