Driving under Paris skies
For only 12 euros a month and around only five euros per half hour, Parisians and visitors alike will be able to hire one of the French-made, lithium metal polymer battery-enabled vehicles and take it round the city of love.
Great news for a tourist like me is the fact the cars all come with GPS and an emergency call button.
The scheme makes a great deal of sense. After all, a recent study by Paris city bosses revealed that cars in the capital spend 95 per cent of the time parked –: a good deal of the remaining five percent is time spent looking for a parking space.
Although I don’t know what the car insurance arrangements are for the hire vehicles, it seems time may be saved on that front as well.
