  • From Paris to Singapore, cities put the brakes on e-scooters
Sharjah 24 – Reuters: Singapore became the latest city to target electronic scooters on Tuesday, when a ban on riding the devices loved by commuters but loathed by pedestrians took effect.
E-scooters have become a common sight on city streets from Berlin to Paris, but they have been blamed for accidents including the death of an elderly lady in Singapore this year.

Anyone riding an e-scooter on the city's sidewalks now faces up to three months in jail or a fine.

Here are five other countries that have restricted or banned e-scooters.
