    Considering that this bill doesn't apply only to fourteen year olds, I wouldn't. Even then, the kid is old enough to make that decision for himself.

    No I just want you to tell his family that because he chose not to wear a helmet his brain wasn't 'worth protecting'.

    Can this resist The Force? If not, it's not good enough.
    It'll never hit anything, so they're fine.

    Nay, anything that discourages cycling is a bad idea imo.

    1) What does "built up" mean in this context? Do you mean exclusively private houses? What about offices running out of a person's private house?
    2) It should be are, not shall be. The latter allows for this to apply at some indeterminate point in the future.
    3) Why 14? Why £60? The wording does not make clear whether the warning directly precedes the fine in response to a single instance, or two separate instances. I know what you mean, but it isn't clear.
    1) It means exclusively private houses I believe.
    2) Fair enough :yy:
    3) Because that's the legal age when they become responsible for wearing a seatbelt and £60 is used for several road-related offences so we thought it would make sense to transfer that to this bill too.

    Perhaps I should have clarified that I meant adults. But if you'd like to pay the long distance charge I'd be happy to give it a go.

    Cyclists are some of the worst people out there, just worse vegans and better communists/socialists.

    This is a sensible proposal which I broadly support. My only concern is the ability of local councils to adequately enforce this law, mindful of inevitable staffing and financial constraints.

    There are no hopes of enforcement as the police will regard this as a petty misdemeanour not worth their limited time, just like most petty misdemeanours.
