Argentina: another no 'helmet-law' country

Ok...now I've heard it all, and honestly, no-one ought to be able to call me bonkers anymore when I declare Australia bonkers!!!

Yesterday blog reader, 'Steve', alerted me to REGULATION 38(6) from South Australia's ROAD TRAFFIC (MISCELLANEOUS) REGULATIONS 1999 which somewhat ridiculously states that...

..."despite the other provisions of this regulation and the Australian Road Rules, a helmet approved for bicycle riders may be used by a passenger on a motor bike who is under 6 years old and may be sold, or offered for sale, for such use."

Sigh - it's too, too silly for words.

♫What's it all about, Austraya?♪
