The government’s Journal Officiel website says that move aims to: “Limit serious injuries to hands and forearms.”
The news ruffled feathers over at motorcycle group FFMC. “It’s not that we are against the gloves, the problem is that we’re forced to wear them under the threat of fines and losing points. There’s no lives at stake here, and if we don’t wear gloves then we aren’t threatening other people’s integrity,” the group said in a statement. The group argued that it would be better to encourage people to wear gloves rather than to make them mandatory.
