We don't know always where to find one and it is cheaper to have its own scooter." (SOUNDBITE) (French) PARISIAN, JEAN YVES GREAU, SAYING: "I am not totally in favour of scooters if we consider their environmental impact. I think there are more often thrown in landfills at the end. Their life-span is limited in Parisians streets so I prefer to walk." FEET SCOOTER PARKING
