The FFM and FFMC denounce the anti-motorcycle behaviour of the Paris City Hall
The Paris Motorcycle show, which opened its doors on 4 October and will run until 14 October, is bringing hundreds of thousands of visitors into the capital, and yet the Paris City Hall has chosen to make another strong-arm move with the forcible removal of hundreds of powered two-wheelers parked around the venue.
The Mayor Mrs Hidalgo is once again penalising the users of powered two-wheelers in a discriminatory manner!
Ironically, the Paris Motorcycle show, which aims to promote mobility and powered two-wheelers which, we would point out, are one of the only possible answers to urban congestion, is seeing a large number of its visitors struck by sanctions.
It is a pity that the Paris City Council rejected the ready-made solution proposed by the FFMC (French Federation of Citizen Motorcyclists) Movement to organise an external motorcycle parking area on a voluntary basis.
Moreover, we must emphasise that there is an acute shortage of parking places for motorcycles in all areas of Paris.
The FFM and the FFMC denounce these actions by the Paris City Hall which are contrary to common sense and will lead many motorcyclists and scooter owners to desert this event in which they have a particular interest.
