No, In France They Do Not Offer Extra Pay To Go To Work By Bike

… Or why we should not believe everything you read. At least not without checking.

He has run the “news” that in France, supposedly, was going to pay an amount per kilometer to workers who opt to travel by bicycle. I read everything in different media, including names of those responsible (Thierry Mariani, Minister of Transport) and amounts payable (0.21 € / km). Sounds good and probably a worthy measure be weighted.

And indeed it is: it has been considered, but nothing more. Apparently, the current transport minister, Frédéric Cuvillier, inherited a plan bicycle (January 2012)  of its predecessor (this time, Mariani, which ceased in office in May 2012)  in which, among others, he considered this measure. The reality is somewhat more complex.

Apparently, in France today companies must provide some employees a supplement due to the distance they have to travel to get to work with bike wheel lights, called indemnité of déplacement, but so far only with respect to the cost of public transport or private car mileage. the French legislation does not provide compensation for those who choose this bike.  the Belgian law, however, provides for a price of 0.22 € / km for these cases.

To any company is prevented from giving arbitrary bonuses if desired, and some have already done, such as L’Herbier du Diois, a company growing aromatic plants offered 100 euros per month for workers who come by bike to least three times a week (September 2013).

But the fact is that this measure has not come forward to vote in the French Parliament (October 2013)  and although the working group of the question the still estimates, does not seem to go to talk about it until the new public health law that It is forecast for 2014.

So the nature of the problem is different. In France  some employees who move into private car and enjoy compensation for displacement, but the bike can not collect it . It seems to me unfair discrimination and quite stupid, because we have already said once that in general the cyclists transport they catch fewer casualties and are more productive. And maybe a good idea to promote the use of bicycles as transportation.

But now it seems it will not be the case. Did they will think better? It is a good idea?
