About 1200 e-scooters from three different suppliers are located in Vienna, with most scooters used in the city center. The problem: Accidents increase and arbitrarily when parking is spreading. District Manager Markus Figl passes it.

The use of e-scooters in Vienna is clearly focusing heavily on the city center. District Manager Markus Figl is now talking about many complaints, as the scooters are also used on high speed pavements and are often parked arbitrarily. Accidents are also increasing.

Figl wants to take the three operators Lime, Bird and TIER Mobility with regard to traffic rules now, because a use of e-scooters is not allowed on sidewalks, but only on the road and on the bicycle roads.
