08 Apr ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM FOR PEDELECS AND E-BIKES
With increasing use of pedelecs, the risk of accidents increases. According to the German Federal Office of Statistics, the curve showing the injuries and fatal accidents displays a steep rise. 4,300 accidents were counted only in the first nine month of 2017 alone. This shows a considerable increase of 28 percent compared to the previous year – with a tendency to rise further. This is not surprising. It is especially older people, who switch to pedelecs. Many of them have however not ridden a bike for years. When they then tread the pedals of a fast vehicle, it can lead to accidents. Alarming: The number of fatal accidents is increasing rapidly.
