Epilepsy and participating in traffic
An epileptic seizure while driving can have serious consequences and therefore the law in most countries includes rules on driving a car, truck or bus, for example, if you suffer from epileptic seizures.
In most countries there are no legal regulations for cycling with epilepsy, but if you suffer from seizures, cycling can be dangerous for you or for other road users. Cycling is very important for many people: it makes you mobile and gives you the feeling of independence. Whether it is safe for someone with epilepsy to cycle, varies per person and depends on the type of seizures. The most risky is cycling along the water, because during a seizure you can end up in the water and drown.
