The number of accidents and injuries for cyclists or users of scooters has risen in Paris

The number of accidents and injuries for cyclists or users of scooters has risen in Paris - The number of accidents and injuries for cyclists or users of scooters has risen in Paris by over a quarter since a strike over a pension reform has paralysed the capital city's public transport system. Parisian commuters have, for the past two weeks, had to rely on alternative means of transport including carpooling, cycling and scooters to travel across the capital.

But this has led to an increase in the number of accidents involving bikes, e-scooters and motorcycles. There was an average of 131 such accidents in each of the first two weeks of the month. This represents a 31% rise from the weekly average of the four weeks immediately preceding the strike movement.
