Sup fam, how you doin? Let's talk about cycling laws.
So, NSW recently introduced a shit-tonne of new laws for cyclists and motorists. It's all about making the roads ~safer~ and ~better~, while also upping the ante on a bunch of regulations around infringement notices.
In 2017, cyclists over the age of 18 (~adults~) will have to have photo identification when they ride as well.
Yesterday, a cyclist in Sydney was hit with one of the first "new and improved" fines for failing to wear a helmet. It cost him $319.
Quite a lot of people are sorta pissed by the new laws, which also see new fines in place for things like riding without a bell.
But then there are also a few people that are sick and tired of Sydney cyclists' apparent rejection of the old laws.

Looks like we are having a problem on the server.
So, is a $319 fine for not wearing a helmet fair, or should people be in control of their own lives and have the option to take the risk?
