The greatest annoyance in the Medina of Marrakech are the motor bikes: hastily they drive through narrow souk alleys, almost touching the one or other person. Thanks to their skills in navigating around pedestrians, we have up to now not seen heavy injuries. However, it remains a nuisance.
Now the Association de Souk S’Marine and Association de Souk Kennaria have put signs in their parts of the Medina of Marrakech to remind that motor bikes are not welcomed in the souks.
In Kennaria, not far from our riad, shop keepers take care that drivers get off their bike. It worked!
We wish the souks’ shop keepers the best and hope they will keep up with their efforts for a bike-free souk!
