and heavy 'Fines' should be imposed, if a person is not wearing one!
Yes. And you are stupid if you don't. Look at Michael Schumacher. That was an injury sustained while wearing a helmet. Think of a watermelon hitting the concrete. I'm amazed people don't wear them.
Yes, Lydia, he disobeyed a rule by ski-ing where he did, & paid for that big-time. He thought he was indestructible, like Christopher Reeve disobeying his Horse Riding Instructor's 'don't wrap reins around your hands'.
They've both learnt the hard way!
If the former wasn't a multi-millionaire, his LS machine would've been switched-off within a day of his accident. Have heard he's in a total vegetative state, & will never recover.

Both of them fools!

Yes it is.
According to the the police, whom I actually asked when at a petrol station, it is compulsory to wear a helmet.
Yes. It has been laid out as a law in part 15 of the Australian Road Rules.
Yes because what if you you fall and hit your head.
Definitely. In both New South Wales and Victoria - it is compulsory.
Compulsory, as it rightly should be!

I once HEARD a motorcyclist's helmet smash against the gutter. It was a sickening sound!
I couldn't see him, as on other side of road to me, but his machine was UNDER the bus!

I often wonder, when I go through that Intersection, if he suffered head injuries'.
It differs everywhere but it si compulsory in Western Australia
