Change the helmet law

Dear Editor,

Amazing to see that the Police are on to the wedding scammers. Good job!


I saw that my grandson is not wearing his helmet sometimes, so yesterday I went and did a check. It’s all a crazy law because yesterday I counted 21 kids on the road to Tereora College with helmets on, and 12 not wearing them while riding on the road.

Also there were four girls who were carrying them on the bikes, maybe because of hair problems.

So it means that the law does not work, and how many times have you been stuck behind slow motorbikes?

So the answer is to make everyone wear a helmet and raise the speed limit to 50km/hr and all will be happy.
