According to Moto Magazine Open link in a new window (the printed magazine of the French Federation of Angry Bikers - FFMC Open link in a new window), after many months of protests and lobbying, the Minister of Interior has suspended today the mandatory wearing of high visibility armbands, a law that was going to be in place starting January 1st 2013.

The previous conservative government had first decided to make all motorcycle riders wear fluorescent clothing, but backed down after many protest rides. They changed the law to force bikers to "only" wear a fluorescent armband. On its own a stupid and senseless law.

After many protest rides organized by the FFMC, today the current socialist government has also caved in and suspended the law. But watch it... the law has not been revoked but suspended. More information gathering is going to be done by the government, and it might be that at a later stage they'll bring back an even stricter law.
