With the purchase of new bicycles in France since January 1, 2021 has become mandatory to register the vehicle. This is reported by TV channel CNews.
Bicycle registration will be carried out directly at the purchase of the vehicle. A customer will be given a sticker with a serial number and a QR code which should be attached to the frame. If the bicycle is resold, the registration information will need to be replaced.
This step should help to reduce the number of cases of stolen bicycles. The representative of the cyclists association Place au velo Daniel Daula said that every year about 400 thousand bicycles are stolen in France. But law enforcement officers can find only one in four stolen bicycles.
