28th August 2010. At last a victory against the road safety industry who would have us all driving rubber cars at 10 kph if they could. In only one of the two countries in the world that enforces push bike riders to wear helmets a woman here in NSW has won a court case for not wearing a helmet, based on lack of evidence that they actually are safer. In fact recent evidence indicates that in Australia the forced use of helmets is a deterrent to riding pushbikes.
