Anti-Noise Crusaders In Paris Want A Partial Motorcycle Ban

The latest battle over combustion-powered two-wheelers in the French capital.

The city council of Paris, France is reportedly considering a partial motorcycle and scooter ban inside the city limits in February 2024.

Electric motorcycles, scooters, and mopeds of all shapes and sizes would not be affected by the proposed ban.

For the many who use scooters and motorcycles to commute, Pierre-Yves Bournazel, an official pushing this ban proposes doubling current financial assistance programs to encourage combustion bike riders to try other, quieter forms of transport.

French Federation of Angry Bikers suggests that one of leaders of Ras le Scoot, a group that campaigns against motorbikes in general, works for an e-bike and cargo bike company as his day job (as is clearly shown on the man’s LinkedIn profile). The implication (not an allegation) is corruption and profiting from public office.
