EU Rules Change – We will need a motor insurance policy

The EC courts have ruled that all pedal assist bicycles will need a mandatory motor insurance policy, however it’s not yet law so don’t panic just yet.

Also if it does become law and a state can adopt this as law if they want to, does this mean you’ll need an applicable licence and registration?

I thought the whole idea of restricting the speed was to keep pedelecs within the realm of bicycles, so should the speed limits be removed too?
