Beer bikes must be less of a nuisance: Amsterdam mayor

5 March 2015

Beer bikes must be less of a nuisance: Amsterdam mayor Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan has given beer bike operators one more summer to show that they can minimize the inconvenience caused by users of their bikes, AT5 reports.

The beer bike operators have agreed on a number of measures to limit the inconvenience to residents, road users and the district. Drivers will be trained to take more responsibility for the group, trip times and alcohol consumption will be reduced and no loud music will be played. The police will also notify the operators directly of reported disturbances. If the inconvenience is not reduced, Mayor van der Laan is considering banning the beer bikes.
