CYCLISTS in France could be fined for not wearing a helmet and fluorescent jacket under a proposed new law.
Corsica MP Sauveur Gandolfi-Scheit has submitted a draft law to parliament which has been supported by 66 others.
The proposed law would require cyclists to wear a bright jacket at all times. At the moment they are only compulsory in rural areas at night.
According to Mr Gandolfi-Scheit, more than 150 cyclists die and 1,500 are injured in road accidents each year.
