Come Monday 29th August, Baby no. 2 will head to a Sydney court to mention her matter for the crime of riding a bicycle without a helmet.
She too believes that civil liberties ought not to be so easily waived, and she too believes that an evidence based approach should always have primacy over commercial faith-based ones.
The obsolescent Australian mandatory bicycle helmet laws have done nothing for us in terms of health, safety, transport, congestion or tourism...
...& in terms of silliness, could even be said to rival the UK legislative prohibition of eating of Mince Pies on Christmas Day - though least the Brits recognise how daft that ban is!!!!!
