While accidents related to the use of electric scooters, sometimes fatal, multiply in urban areas, the philanthropic association action against urban anarchy vector incivility (APACAUVI) must be received at the Ministry of Transport, to claim including more severe regulation. Invited from Europe 1 Monday, Jocelyn Loumeto, delegate general of the Federation of professionals of micro-mobility, believes that the problem comes rather self-service devices. "A lot of accidents happen because of a lack of control", explains this manager. "They are very often users of self-service machines, who are not regular users."

For Jocelyn Loumeto, "it is obvious that when an owner has a utilitarian use of his scooter, and that he spent 1,000 or 1,500 euros for his scooter, he is someone who will equip himself, wear a helmet. , pay attention to his machine, and that will not behave delinquency. "
The general delegate of the Federation of micro-mobility professionals takes the example of Lille, where there are no self-service operators. "There are a lot of scooters and a lot less returns of incivility," he says. And to conclude: "whatever the speed limit, as long as there is no prevention, training, there will be incivility and behavior of delinquency".
