    It is now mandatory for motorcyclists in France to carry EC homologated motorcycle gloves.

    The move is the result of the 2015 decision of the Interministerial Committee for Road Safety, which now comes into force and applies to all drivers of motorcycles, tricycles and quads such as the Piaggio MP3 or Quadro.

    Any rider or pillion stopped by police not wearing approved gloves can be issued a €68 fine.

    The new law is the result of a French study which found that 12 % of motorcyclists wore no gloves.
