    Pierre, vous avez une grande mesure de bonne chance! La vidéo est très intéressante. Bienvenue au forum.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    An unfortunate accident, to be sure.

    What advantage(s) do you see in using the Velomobile rather than a more typical bicycle?

    I think the fiberglass shell did a lot to protect Pierre, and if he had been riding a more typical bicycle, he might be dead.

    Sorry Pierre, I know your English isn't very good but I'm curious of the outcome? Was the driver found liable? Did Pierre get hurt? Did he get compensated? Can anyone translate the information from the video?
