    Default Cyclist fined for wearing helmet too loosely on Ride2Work Day

    A YOUNG cyclist was left in tears after two police officers fined her $70 because the strap on her fastened helmet wasn’t tight enough.
    The university student was confronted on a Carlton North bike path at about 7.30pm last night by the highway patrol members who were stopping cyclists on the popular peak-hour route.
    Resident Max Ryan witnessed the girl being spoken to on Ride2Work Day before phoning police to complain of her treatment.
    He told the Herald Sun he also saw a male rider who wasn’t wearing a helmet let go with a warning.
    “I felt really awful for her.
    “I totally understand if somebody is not doing the right thing, but it’s such a subjective argument to understand how tight a helmet should be. Are police going to be sticking two fingers in between the strap and their chin?” Mr Ryan said


    He said the woman had been cycling through a park near the corner of Park and Lygon St when she was stopped.
    A Victoria Police spokesman confirmed cyclists could be fined if their clipped on helmets were too loosely fastened.
    Police Commissioner Graham Ashton took to radio this morning to defend the officers’ actions.
    “It’s something that on the surface can appear to be overkill but if you’re not there it’s hard to second-guess sometimes,” he told ABC radio.
    “Normally that’s the sort of thing where a caution would apply, but in this case the members thought it best to go down the infringement path.”

    year ago when i was just riding for transportation to work and not actively cycling work hich was 5mins up the road
    I was doing nightshift and got pulled over by the cops , for not wearing a helmet, they were going to let my tyres down , we joked around for a bit and I told them that they could explain to my boss why i was late , so they let me off with a warning

    the next morning the same cops pulled me over , we joked around for a bit more , they let me off with a warning again and said get a helmet , if we see you tomorrow you get fine , so went got helmet

    sure enough the next morning they pulled me over and congratulated me

    It is good that the police are dealing severely with these important matters.

    Possibly saw her do dodgy stuff up the road and looked for a reason to book her.

    Or they mentioned the helmet and she gave them attitude so they fined her. If you are polite, no way would they book you for that as its a cnt act.
