European Union ratified recently new directives that should, gradually, bring more harmony around driving licenses which, for example in France, relate to light 4-wheel vehicles.
New legislations allow even 14-year old holders of a license to use light 4-wheel vehicles. Our equivalent would be a driving license issued for "bicycles with an engine". Until now, one had to be at least 16 years old to become eligible for such a driving license.
French teenagers can now move around with Renault's TWIZY 45 electric vehicle. It offers more comfort, a body with the safety cage, airbags, safety belts and, also, an overall higher degree of safety compared to 2-wheel vehicles. Not least a much earlier and less stressful experience in traffic.
Any chance of other EU nations considering similar changes?
