NO CONVICTION | The Queensland man who was charged for riding his bike without a helmet has escaped penalty.

Jasdeep Atwal says it's his religious duty to wear his turban in public. The devout Sikh arrived and left the court on his silver bicycle.

I dont see what the problem is, if he wants to die good for him.

Hope no kids are around when his brains are on the pavement.

Probably provides equivalent head protection to a bicycle helmet anyway :).

(I'm pretty sure that a being a Sikh means that he doesn't cut his hair and under the turban his hair is wrapped around and piled on top of his head; he couldn't physically wear a helmet without cutting it shorter.)

I don't get a lot of the responses in this thread, "us aussies", "eating a cow in his sorry native country" (WTF does that have to do with anything, much less a helmet?). More people buying right into tabloid media.

His nationality or religion shouldn't make a difference. What I see as the bigger problem is that nanny state says we have to wear a helmet, and that it will punish us if we don't. Adults can't think for themselves apparently.

If you want to wear a helmet, power to you, and if you don't, power to you too as long as you accept the possible consequences in a worst case scenario.

Mind you, the issue is if he offs and doesn't die. Then the tax payer has to pay for his brain to be put back together. I guess thats why in the states helmets and seat belts are not mandatory ( depending on your state ) because you pay for your own medical car, well your insurance does.
