Melbourne: The Australian government have made some changes to compulsory bicycle helmet laws to exempt people who wear turbans for their religion.
Transport Minister Scott Emerson said the people will have to demonstrate that they are a Sikh but fell short of explaining what degree of proof would be required, Courier Mail reported.
Emerson said that the exemption was a “common sense” move and followed the overturning of a fine issued to a man for not wearing a helmet in the place of his turban while he was riding a bicycle in Brisbane.
Emerson added that wearing a full burka will not be an excuse for not wearing any helmet.
