Plans to ban bikes from city centres scrapped

Crackpot plans to ban bikes older than 2004 from city centres in France have been scrapped.

The idea was that anyone riding a bike older than 2004 would be banned from riding in eight major cities in France to improve air quality.

If you’ve ever ridden in France you’ll know that no motorcycle in French cities ever stays still causing pollution for more than a few seconds, whatever age they are so the  idea was ridiculous from the start.

The Government has now scrapped the idea following pressure from MAG’s (Motorcycle Action Group) French sister organisation FFMC.

The move by the French government should put any plans to investigate this move across Europe on the backburner.
