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.

Stickers

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."

150cm2??? :blink: :wacko: :blink:

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.
