The infrastructure minister: “Referendum in France in the spring”. And it launches referendums on fast scooters
”Paris has just announced a referendum, in the spring, on the possible blocking of scooter sharing. Yesterday on Instagram, out of more than 3,000 people who responded, almost 8 out of 10 said they were in favor of banning the free sale, without supervision, of those dangerous non-compliant scooters that can whiz by even at 60 km/h, becoming a source of serious accidents. What do you think about it?”. The Minister of Infrastructure, Matteo Salvini, launches the consultation on Istagram.
”Safer roads and highways, with more penalties for those who drive and kill drug addicts and drunk, more protection for cyclists and pedestrians and zero tolerance for those who use mobile phones while driving”, underlined the minister. ”These are some of the objectives of the new Highway Code on which we are committed”. The debate started ”on the fight against the wild scooter is involving important cities such as Florence, where for over a year the compulsory wearing of a helmet has been discussed, and European capitals such as Paris”.
