And here I thought bike helmet laws were merely anti-freedom, not letting people make up their own minds as to whether they wished to protect themselves or not.
An Australian woman is fighting back against her country’s compulsory bike helmet law, calling it sexist.
Sue Abbott of Scone, New South Wales, was fined $153 this week in Adelaide for not wearing her helmet, but it wasn’t the first time. She told Adelaide Now she has been fined a dozen of times but she refused to pay and police have even seized her bicycle and sold it to pay her fines.
“It is a very sexist law because a lot of women have maintained hairstyles and would end up with helmet hair — and women have told me that’s one of the factors (for not riding bikes),” she told the newspaper.
Always amusing when prog dogma such as ‘anti-sexism’ ideology clashes with progs’ nanny / police state…
