The air pollution control association Respire launched at the end of August an emergency procedure (referred to as a suspension) against the government's flip-flop. After having published on August 11 in the Official Journal a decree establishing from January 2023 this control, imposed by an EU directive, the latter announced the following day his suspension

"until further notice"

, at the request of the president. of the Republic, in the face of the discontent of the biker federations. But the summary judge of the Council of State had considered that the condition of urgency was not met.

This new technical control was to concern all motorized vehicles with two, three and four wheels, 50 cm3 scooters and cars without a license included, to fight against accidents and pollution.

The associations are now contesting

"This scandalous decision by the Government is to the detriment of the health of millions of French people,"

The associations also highlight the risk of accidents in motorized two-wheelers in the absence of technical control.

“We do not understand why motorized two-wheelers would be exempt from technical control.

All thermal vehicles must be checked, it is a measure of justice towards other users not represented by the biker lobby ”
