That is so, but you now have to have reflective stickers on both sides and front/rear of helmet to meet with French type approval, no stickers = non approved helmet = 135 euro fine if plod decide to stick you on for it.
so where am I supposed to get them from? Would some 3M reflective tape do or am I looking at something specific?
_" the French authorities have recently announced the full and permanent
scrapping of previous plans to force all bikers riding a machine of more
than 125cc to wear **150cm2 **of reflective clothing anywhere between the
waist and the shoulders."
That's a sail if not a wind break. No wonder they scrapped it.
Anyway, a victory for common sense, well done the French.
But take a look at this....
which states the law is from 1975, and only applies to helmets sold in france, not to helmets of riders visiting france......must admit, I never noticed these stickers when I lived there.
