Auderghem is introducing drop-off zones for micro-mobility users later this year, despite already clamping down on badly-parked electric scooters.

Since 2019, police in the commune issue fines for two-wheel users who wrongly park their vehicles. But the stricter measure has not proved to be a totally effective solution.

That’s why it’s decided to install around a dozen designated zones: places where users of free-floating shared scooters and bicycles need to park their vehicles, reports Bruzz following an article in La Capitale.

Strategic parking places

Auderghem is currently looking into where to locate the drop-off zones, pinpointing the places where vehicles are frequently abandoned and cause the most public nuisance.

These are mainly in the vicinity of metro stops, shopping centres and schools. The precise location points are expected to be decided at the next city council meeting.

Initially, between 10 and 15 parking zones will be created, but the municipality does not exclude installing additional ones in the future.
