How to prepare for the electric transition?

Cities are often a reflection of society: in recent years, the transition is taking place to become greener and more environmentally friendly.

Parking spaces are often problematic in large cities, with few spaces, narrow spaces and high prices.

The monthly subscription fee for a car in Paris is between 70 and 90 euros.

This is why many city dwellers have turned to two-wheelers, which are slim, easy to park and above all have free parking.

The two-wheeler boom in Paris over the last ten years

Paris is one of the European capitals with the largest number of two-wheelers in its fleet. It must be recognized that this has helped to ease the already dense traffic in the city and on the ring road.

There are currently more than 100,000 scooters in Paris and until then, the question of parking spaces had never arisen.

This was without counting on a new regulation which was discussed for a long time and which was recently introduced.

An evolving regulation in Paris

However, as CNET reminds us, since September 1, 2022, the regulations have changed and the 42,000 dedicated spaces and areas shared with cars are now paid for, as promised by Anne Hidalgo.

Paris City Hall also warns users of motorized vehicles who would use sidewalks or bike parking: this is prohibited and punishable.

Nevertheless, the paid parking will only apply to thermal two-wheelers and not to electric two-wheelers!

As you can see, the goal of the maneuver is to stem the traffic on the streets and encourage users to opt for more environmentally friendly mobility.
