Budapest’s 1st District To Ban E-Scooters
According to plans it will be forbidden to rent or park electric scooters in Budapest’s First District.

Local representative Dániel Varga said on the district’s official Facebook page that e-scooters often lie abandoned on pavements and even bushes, marring the district’s public spaces.

Moreover, he continued, the practice of abandoning scooters is dangerous and annoying, so the district decided to resolve the issue with a new regulation that will enter into force sometime this autumn.
