AXA, as one of the leading producers of bicycle lighting products, is one of the stakeholders in the foundation of a Dutch approval for safe bicycle lighting.
The Dutch Government set few requirements for bicycle lighting. Lighting may be mounted everywhere and except the color scheme nothing is required. It’s clear that this cannot guarantee the safety of the cyclist.
While bicycle mobility is still increasing every year, the number of accidents is also increasing. The number of accidents between dusk and dawn is in comparison to the total number of accidents high. Very important therefore, to protect the vulnerable cyclist as much as possible.
The RKF label helps you to find your way in the wide range of available lighting products by advising you on safe lighting products, not only to be seen by other traffic, but also to be able to see yourself what happens in front of your bike.
