French Helmet Law
on: April 19, 2013, 06:59:19 PM
We're doing a couple of Euro Tours this year and will be riding  in France on a number of occasions.
Has any one heard anything about the French requirement for reflective helmet stickers ?

It's been the law for years over there hasn't it. Never heard of a foreigner being done though.

If you're worried,

Been to France loads of times, never been pulled over or questioned about it even when talking to the police  :028:
I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about.

We usually do multiple trips each year and have had no problems, to date. Just wondered if anyone had any info on this ? I know the reflective clothing requirement has now been dropped after protests by French bikers.
