Leaders of a group of about 60 victims said they planned to sue the Paris authorities for negligence over the rising number of people being injured as electric scooters, or “trottinettes”, gain popularity

Those on scene also alleged that the fire was started by a charging Personal Mobility Device (PMD) along the corridor, although this is unconfirmed.
The family and neighbours were lucky to be alive.

I am so sorry that people like these are running public institutions. People have been killed and hurt while they chose to talk.

I cannot believe that it took so long for them to realize the adoption of UL2272 standard (only in September last year) to improve fire safety.

What about mobile and notebook batteries, which are also potential fire risk. Are they going to ensure these devices have to be listed? Many people use unlisted devices and charged them unattended besides combustibles e.g on office desks, besides bed, on top of their expensive HT/hifi etc. I always ensure mine are all UL listed, many years ago.

the trouble caused by e scooter riders is growing and almost everyday there are news.
And there are no less new regulations to control these PMDs, and more and more have been implemented as a result of the problem from these.
Relatively a lot more work is needed by allowing PMDs.
When it takes more than it gives, what do you do ?
Do you give some more ? Till when ?

What are the reasons for allowing, and excessively accommodating PMDs ?

The real reason...

Give some more ?
