Oslo has had enough: Elløbehjul makes the city to the wild west

the City government in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, is about to get enough of the many elløbehjul in the city.

The 13,000 scooters have become a dangerous affair for Oslo walking, and often they are thrown around in the city.

But now, it should cost according to the city council. Now the municipality will collect the many elløbehjul, there is a and flowing, and the companies that own them, need to pay to get them back.

- When we must do the work for the companies and take care that they comply with the laws, regulations and rules, then they must take the bill - not the taxpayers, says Arild Hermstad, who is the councilman for the environment and traffic in Oslo, to the newspaper Dagbladet.

the Problems with elløbehjulene in Oslo has grown into a much bigger problem than in Denmark.

There does not seem to apply to some rules. That will run strong on the sidewalks, and Oslo's seats - which are designed for walking - seems transformed into the wild west. It has led to some accidents.

Why has the city council in Oslo, approached the government and requested stricter rules.

For companies - here, first and foremost, Voi and Tier - has not taken corporate social responsibility, believes Hermstad.

Voi says that the company will support the new rules, which means that the municipality removes elløbehjul that are thrown around in the municipality.

- We support that corrective action is taken. Neither the city's inhabitants, traffic participants or actors are earned with the situation as it is right now, says Voi's boss in Norway, Christina Moe Gjerde.

emergency departments in Oslo before the weekend sounded the alarm after many serious accidents with elløbehjul over the summer. In particular, it is night, it is mad, too many running around heavily intoxicated.

- Oslo medical service will recommend to close for the use of elløbehjul of the night. We hope that those responsible will act quickly, says the chief physician Henrik Siverts to the Newspaper.
