Wending your way in Wanaka

(Wanaka, New Zealand, August 2014)


Our kiwi cousins across the Tasman also have the Cul-de-sac of transport strategy (bicycle helmet law) ...

... and whilst some safety-nanny-dedicated types enjoy wallowing in the goodness of mandatory requirements, many New Zealanders, just like many Australians, get it that bicycle helmet regulations are nothing more than a tacky imitation of good safety practice ...

... and so just like many of us, many kiwis eschew helmets for 'nothing' (or sometimes 'something-a-little-more-comfortable' like the beanie here).

Seriously to all you antipodean pollies, both sides of the Tasman:

"Con te partirò ... time to say goodbye ...



... to helmet law once and for all."
