Hold on to your helmets, because Paris is on a roll... or rather, not anymore! The city of love has officially put the brakes on e-scooters, leaving both tourists and locals in a state of shock and confusion.
Paris has banned e-scooters from its streets, citing safety concerns and a general annoyance factor for pedestrians. And let's be real, who among us hasn't been cut off by a rogue e-scooter while trying to enjoy a leisurely walk around the city?
That said, what about all the tourists who were looking forward to scooting around the city? How will they survive? Will they have to resort to... gasp... walking? Oh, the humanity!
E-scooter companies thought they had found the perfect market in Paris, a city known for its eco-friendly initiatives and love of all things tech. Alas, their dreams have been dashed, and they will have to find new cities to conquer with their speedy, yet controversial, modes of transportation.
Is this a trend we'll see across the US? Only time will tell...
