    French Bike Laws

    Who can tell me about French bike laws? Specifically, do I need reflectors and a bell? If I do need reflectors, do I need front, back, and wheels or just some of them? Thanks!

    Hello,
    french law state that you need a bell, front red reflector, a back white, orange on pedals and 3 or 4 in the wheels. You also need a front white light and a back red one.
    Actually, I only have a back red flashlight and I've never been said anything by a cop ;-)

    BTW, I live in Paris and some cops are very anti-bike here.
