SUV parking in Paris: the government attacks Anne Hidalgo

The Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire criticizes Anne Hidalgo for raising the price of parking for SUVs in Paris.

A controversial measure

We are aware that Anne Hidalgo has a bias against motorists, which she has held for several years. This distrust reached a new level recently with the introduction of a specific and higher rate for SUVs in Paris. The vote for this measure had a participation rate of less than 5%. In total, only 78,121 Parisians expressed their opinion, with 54.55% voting in favor of creating a specific tariff for raised cars. Despite the vote’s outcome, not everyone agrees with it, including the government. Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire recently expressed his disapproval, stating, “This ‘citizen vote’ is a farce.” “I regret that Anne Hidalgo did this.” “Be careful not to play with democracy, because in the end, that damages it.”

A controversial measure

He criticizes the mayor of Paris, lamenting that nobody is consulted before implementing various, yet very restrictive, measures. He continues to say, “There are very important choices that have been made in the city of Paris, regarding traffic directions, pedestrianization of certain roads, and urban planning. Were Parisians consulted about this? Never.” He is not the only one criticizing Anne Hidalgo, as Deputy Police Chief of the capital, Elise Lavielle, also voices her disapproval, stating that “the city of Paris mostly favors an isolated and independent presentation of its projects.” A “fragmented vision” that makes the analysis work of our services extremely complicated. It remains to be seen whether the councilor will be receptive to these criticisms, but that is uncertain.
