In Holland the Speed Pedelec is no Longer Seen as a Bike

What is written here about speed pedelecs in the Netherlands goes for all EU countries. Speed pedelecs have been categorized as mopeds in European harmonized technical regulations. However, member states have the competence to give them a special status in traffic law and for instance, allow them to ride where bicycles ride or exempt them from moped helmets, … The Netherlands are currently considering such measures. Belgium has already introduced them. Hopefully, other EU member states are to follow since the speed pedelec offers huge potential for sustainable mobility.
