Some interesting legislation...

Saw this while looking up South Australian legislation to do with electric powered bikes…

26—Sikhs exempt from wearing bicycle helmets

For the purposes of rule 256(1) and (2) (Bicycle helmets), a person of the Sikh religion who is wearing a turban is exempt from wearing a bicycle helmet.

so what you’re saying is that not wearing a helmet is fully sikh?

i was going to make a joke to that effect. but you beat me to it.

Why? Can’t they just extend the chin strap a little further?

don’t know if it’s still valid, but a few years ag a guy here in brisbane successfully got a ticket knocked down and an official exemption from all types of helmets because he’s a practicing rasta and can’t get helmets to fit.
thought that was pretty cool.

I wonder if the same would work for claustrophobia?

Or migranes…

i think you need to carry a letter from your doctor stating why you can’t wear a helmet for medical reasons…

The doctor’s letter is not a ‘once only’ deal. It has to be renewed every few months/years (it worked for a friend).
