Over the weekend keen eyed readers might have noticed my absence.
As it happens I went on a 3,000km road trip to a freak bike convention in the Flinders Ranges, where I managed to get pinged for not wearing a bike helmet while riding a chopper dressed as Zorro while wearing my Richard Roughcut freakbike persona.
I intend to write a letter requesting a downgrade to a warning considering I was an invited guest of a bike festival, on a road closed for the festival, and almost no one else was wearing a helmet. Should that be unsuccessful I’ll pay the fine.
But my intellectual curiosity is piqued.
What would happen if I failed to pay an interstate helmet fine?
