Yes, helmets and MHLs are of questionable effectiveness and even then they have been forced upon us by the nanny state. That said it is a "free country"** If it is deemed by those that a sag wagon is necessary for safety or support then they can go right ahead.
This decision may keep those involved safer. It it is a continuing trend however will likely make cycling in Australia less safe and free. I'm not meaning to criticise the decision. In some ways cyclists who wear hi-vis vests when cycling do also. (Something that at times I have done.)
