Police in Canberra will no longer issue fines to riders who wear a headdress for religious reasons caught riding without a helmet.
The new road safety regulations, which quietly came into effect in December, won’t apply to other riders who will still be fined if they’re caught riding a bike or personal mobility device without a helmet in the nation’s capital.
ACT roads minister Shane Rattenbury spruiked the new laws as particularly important to Sikhs, whose headwear makes it difficult to wear a helmet while cycling.
