Electric scooters banned from being parked on Copenhagen streets

0 sec fa

The City of Copenhagen wants to ban electric scooter rentals from the city centre. Under a new regulation proposed by the Mayor of Technical and Environmental Affairs, Ninna Hedeager Olsen, it will no longer be possible to rent or park an electric scooter in the majority of Copenhagen's historic centre and adjacent neighbourhoods. The regulation is to put an end to the clutter and disorder caused by abandoned electric scooters in Copenhagen’s streets.
