SYA lobbies for Sikh-friendly change to NSW bicycle helmet laws

Following the recent announcement by the Queensland Transport Minister, Scott Emerson to include an exemption in Queensland’s bicycle helmet laws on the basis of religion, SYA's Legal Advocacy Team commenced efforts to lobby the NSW government to amend the NSW bicycle helmet laws to allow turbaned Sikhs the right to legally ride their bicycles in the state - an issue we felt was important to the Sikh youth of NSW.
