Parking in Paris & Bordeaux
When riding in Paris & Bordeaux, only park in parking spots labeled for e-scooters, two-wheelers or “MOTO”. These are marked on your in-app map with a blue “P”. Never park on the sidewalk.
Once you’re in a parking spot, we’ll ask you to snap a photo of your parked scooter so we know you parked correctly. Always park your Dott in an upright position using the kickstand. If the app prompts you to take a picture and check your parking spot, make sure that the photo is in focus and shows where the scooter is parked. In the event of incorrect parking or an illegible photo, you risk a fine of €10.
Parking outside of the Dott riding area is not possible and can lead to an administrative relocation fee up to €300 in addition to possible legal fines from cities. Never park in areas that are legally off limits, such as:
- In the middle of the sidewalk or bike lanes
- Private property or private driveways
- Wheelchair ramps
- Areas that need to stay free for safety reasons (e.g. hospital entrances)
- No-park zones (these are generally shown on your in-app map)
Please ensure that the photo is only of the vehicle and does not include images of yourself or other people.
