Today there are nearly 40% of Frenchman uses a bicycle regularly. With 25 million users, the little queen is back in the cities. But are cyclists responsible drivers, and wearing reflective safety vest and helmet as is requested?

The bicycle comes in our cities. 40% of French people say do regularly bike. However, according to a study by Opinion on behalf of the insurer MMA, 95% of cyclists feel particularly threatened by bike. They are even 60% feel more at risk on the bicycle than on any other mode of personal transportation.

"The rider is not protected by a passenger compartment and the sense of vulnerability is inevitably stronger. The slightest shock can have serious consequences. Thus, in 2013, cyclists were 4% of road deaths. And this figure is very clear increase in 2014 with an increase of 6% over the last 12 months, "explains Stéphane Daeschner in charge of preventing road risks in MMA.

Drivers not always responsible

Although they do not feel safe cycling, cyclists are not provided more respectful of the Highway Code. They are already 88% admit to having committed an offense bike. 71% admit on sidewalks and 49% have already taken a prohibited direction. Why are cyclists so disrespectful of the rules? The feeling of impunity of the bicycle enthusiasts is real. They say 44% feel that they are not likely to bike fine.

Furthermore, the bike loss is very high. In addition to an increase of 6% of road deaths, they are 46% acknowledge having had at least one bicycle accident.

"The study also shows that the rate of bicycle equipment remains low. Thus, only 22% of cyclists always wear a helmet at daytime and 17% of reflective vest / reflective accessories. At night, this proportion rises slightly: 31% always wear a helmet and 49% of clothing with reflective tape / reflective accessories. Finally, 1/4 cyclists still use a bicycle without lights at the front or at the back. "

So although more vulnerable than other drivers, cyclists are not more careful. The French take more risks bicycle, more less they respect the Highway Code, and threaten.
