Last weekend Leuven police held a blitz clamping down on cyclists not displaying a light. Several cyclists were fined for failing to light up. When a skateboarder arrived, he experienced the same fate.
Nicolas Del Piero: "Everybody who moves faster than a pedestrian on any form of vehicle must display a light!
The light at the front should be white, at the rear red! It's not only skateboarders that need to watch out in Leuven. People using a hover board or a scooter too risk a fine!
Nicolas Del Piero: "The law is very clear. It's very simple really: if it's dark, make sure you can be seen!"
Driving without a light is a first degree traffic offence worth a 58 euro fine.
