That says the local police. The Fietsersbond advocates as a result of the accident for a custom practical exam for the directors of speed pedelecs.

The victim drove without a helmet at high speed, lost to an unknown cause control of his bike and came a heavy fall. There would be no other vehicles involved in the accident.

The Park is now calling on to the practical exam for future pedelec-directors. With the fast electric bike to drive, the driver should at this time be in possession of a driving licence for moped or car, but in practice, this is not sufficient, according to the Fietsersbond. For the speed pedelec, there are other skills needed for a moped or car.
