Cities to be allowed to charge bikers for parking
The Federal Council says from next year it will allow cities to charge motorcycles and electric bikes for parking.
Currently bikers can park for free.
Several cities are now thinking of bringing in charges but they may still exempt e-bikes.
The move is splitting politicians – some Swiss People’s Party members say bikes take up much less space and so should be encouraged.
But the motoring organization, the TCS, says motorcycles should be treated equally with cars but say e-bikes should still be free.
