Hi Vis France
« on: May 22, 2015, 11:25:51 am »
I have read that from May 1st in France even motorcyclists will require a hi vis vest for use in case of breakdown.
Can anyone confirm this?

Classic Big Brother knows best.

The prostitutes in Spain are mandated to wear Hi Viz jackets whilst street walking, I kid you not.  When I was a lad you had to pay extra for dressing up!

We will soon be at the stage where every newborn is put in HiViz, hard hat and ear protectors from birth.  Once the state takes over responsibility for our safety how long will it be before those dangerous motorcycles are banned?

Glad I'm entering the afternoon of my life I still choose to wear a Black Roadcrafter, Black Helmet and assume all other road users don't see me, worked so far.  I do choose to wear a HiViz vest if I'm riding through the night on unlit roads because if I fall off and lay in the road there's a slim chance I might be seen.

Later

Dave

Come on, a vis-vest cost a few quid, if you do break down especially in poor light I would prefer to have one to wear. Enables other road users to see you and the breakdown services.

Who mentioned cost?  I'm concerned with a government which tells me what to wear.  Of course they are already trying to tell me what to think
