Drivers and passengers of motorcycles and scooters on French roads must wear thick gloves from November 20 or risk being fined. According to a European study, wearing approved gloves can significantly reduce most (95%) of hand injuries. Two-wheeler users who ignore the new rule will be fined €68, or €45 if paid on the spot or within 15 days.

The new rule was first announced last year but has just been published in the official journal. The driver will lose 1 point on his licence. Not wearing a helmet entails a fine of €135 and 3 points.
