Under NSW law, a cyclist has the same rights and responsibilities as drivers and motorcycle riders.
By law, you must wear an approved bicycle helmet while cycling in NSW. Approved helmets are marked with an Australian Standard Approved Notification (either red or black).
A helmet, when fitted correctly, can reduce the risk of head/brain injury by up to 85 per cent. A helmet that's not worn correctly does not provide enough protection.
Children have little or no sense of danger. They're extremely vulnerable when playing and riding near roads and driveways. Extra care needs to be taken to ensure their safety and encourage road safety education.
