OK, i'm confused, i thought helmets were compulsory in every state. And the link lists under 'traffic infringements', 'riding without helmet securely fastened'. So are helmets mandatory in the territory or not?
Like the link says; you must wear a helmet if you ride on the road. It also says you can ride your bike on the footpath. That means that if you stick to the footpath, you don't legally have to wear a helmet (even if you are more likely to be hit by a car).
