    Uccle will institute sanctions for e-scooter providers whose vehicles block markers for the visually impaired.

    The municipality of Uccle called out e-scooter operator Lime in a Facebook post for some of its scooters being left on top of sidewalk markers for the visually impaired.

    The Facebook post also asked users to park e-scooters in places that don’t interfere with others and to leave a space of at least 1.5 meters so there is room for others to get by.

    In the post, the commune also announced that it would be sanctioning e-scooter operators and users who do not comply with the regulations.
