The French authorities have announced the full and permanent scrapping of plans to force all bikers riding a machine larger than 125cc to wear reflective clothing. Under the proposals, bikers not wearing the appropriate reflective clothing would have been liable to a 68 Euros fine and two points on their licence.

The news comes after a series of demonstrations organised by the French Federation of Angry Bikers which claims that up to 100,000 riders were involved in national demonstrations. With this battle won, the Angry Bikers are now seeking to make traffic filtering legal in France.
