Can I still buy electric scooters nowRecently, the government of Paris, France, issued a governance measure. In order to protect pedestrians and maintain traffic safety, all electric scooters on the market and on the road will undergo large-scale rectification, and users and related companies who not following the rules.
The reason is that electric scooters bring huge traffic hazards. It seems that China is not the only country in the world with "one size fits all" management of electric vehicles!
In fact, such models are not uncommon in China.
Especially as the implementation of the new national standard becomes more and more strict, some young people who travel for short distances, under the influence and promotion of national policies, begin to prefer the shared motorcycles with the characteristics of portability, low price and small size to enter the electric bicycle on a large scale. In the field of vehicles, electric scooters have become their main travel tools.
In addition, the new national standard implemented this year divides electric vehicles into electric bicycles, electric motorcycles and mopeds, excluding electric scooters, making electric scooters a "vacuum zone" for traffic control.
Even more embarrassing is that, so far, there is no production and management method applicable to this type of vehicle from national to local. On the basis of national rectification, according to the previous regulations, he managed according to the old national standard GB17761-1999 for electric vehicles.
Under the influence of these factors, electric scooters often lead to traffic accidents.
An electric scooter risk monitoring report released earlier by the State Administration for Market Regulation shows that the compliance rate of the 40 batches of electric scooters collected and monitored from various channels this time is 0, which is the lowest among various project risk monitoring products over the years, and none of them conform to .
Based on this, in November last year, Beijing and Shanghai listed electric scooters, balance bikes, unicycles, and elderly scooters as illegal on the road. Once found, they were punished with vehicle impoundment and fines ranging from the amount.
Once an accident occurs, it is likely to involve the main body of production and sales.
At present, the new national standard is fully implemented, and the business of dealers in various places is not as good as before. In order to ease operating pressure, some dealers are likely to use scooters as another sales category.
But considering many aspects such as national management, production standards, traffic accidents, etc., this is not a good way out and may lead to lawsuits.
