The city of Cologne and e-scooter providers agree on measures and new rules to overcome the hassle with the rental scooters.
Cologne – E-Scooter in Cologne *: For months, a source of accidents, recklessness and anger in the cathedral city. More than 500 e-scooters are still slumbering on the bottom of the Rhine * and the providers of the rental vehicles are only partially fulfilling their obligation to evacuate. In order to avoid an impending ban on e-scooters, the e-scooter rental companies and the city of Cologne have now agreed on a package of measures. Among other things, the no-parking zones are being expanded. At 24RHEIN * you can read the overview of the new measures and rules for e-scooters in Cologne *.
It remains to be seen whether the new rules will take effect quickly. Markus Greitemann from the Cologne city department for mobility has already set a new appointment with the scooter providers: "We will monitor the implementation of the measures very closely and readjust them if necessary."
