2 mentions + 1 Local Court defended hearing + 1 District Court appeal = 4 court appearances for me because of Australian helmet laws! sigh
Notwithstanding this curial tally, the courts truly don't want to waste either their time or their precious resources over my matter. In fact they have even gone as far as to ponder on record why unhelmeted cycling is a crime.
However until such time as unhelmeted cycling is removed from the criminal law, I will continue to defend my civil liberties.
When will this national madness cease?
ASK YOUR LOCAL MEMBER TO REPEAL MANDATORY HELMET LAWS!
