Self repair kiosks

These seem like a good idea, wonder if they ever appear here in Oz?

Vending machine like that on the lower concourse at Spencer St Station, sadly, no tools or stand :(
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

We have one at the uni campus I work at, and it seems to be getting a bit of play (not only have none of the tools disappeared yet, a few rags have rather handily been added to it). It includes a pump. We don't have the vending machine yet though, I've been meaning to harrass the bookshop to stock a few tubes but the vending machine's probably at least as good an option since most problems would be found at the beginning/end of the day. I know there are a few machines around that dispense other types of rubber things so I'm sure it's doable :idea:

If you bought one for use here in Australia, you could forget about claiming damages in the event of any collision with a car, because the case would most likely be dismissed, or your damages payout considerably reduced, due to the helmet not being certified to standard AS/NZS 2063:2008. Even if it meets all the requirements of this standard, it would still have to be certified (and labelled).

There's a similar vending machine in one of the Swanston St exits from Melbourne Central Stn. Tubes, lights, etc
