    I'd have fined him for naming his son Zander.
    I call BS on him loosening the strap to talk to the cuntstables. Helmets done up aren't uncomfortable such that you have to loosen them for a 5 minute discussion - unless the lid is crap.

    I just always think of the kid/adult having to spell out their name to someone, every time. I know unconventional names only become conventional through using them but I'd never subject a kid to an unusual name for the reason that it sucks enough having to spell my name out for people given the variations.

    As AE said, it'll get chucked out in court (especially with the media focus on the case). When dealing with morons (ie traffic enforcement police), remove your helmet and have your license ready as they're walking over. Or just y'know... don't stop
    Rest in Peace

    You have never had name issues until you have had my surname for a day. Ms boeman is excited to inherit it soon, little she know the pain and suffering that comes with it.

    two police officers with a speed radar gun, who queried whether he was speeding
    the officers had stopped him before asking him to rev his engine to assess how loud it was
    ok. so either these coppers are a pair of fucking peanuts or we arent getting the whole story here and somone has failed the attitude test.

    I'm betting it's column A. Cops have asked me to do the same with my bike, to which I politely declined as there was a case in Sydney where the judge deemed the police "insufficiently trained to make a judgement on the loudness of a vehicle". They're trying to get him for anything, whether it's speed, bike too loud, and they finally settled on gear.
    Rest in Peace

    Quick lunchtime research...

    According to https://www.rsc.wa.gov.au/Rules-Penalties, the $550 fine and 4 demerits applies to "Driving a motorcycle where the driver and/or the passenger do not have an appropriate protective helmet." It makes no mention of it being securely fastened. Not sure if "appropriate protective" extends to helmet fastening.

    The Road Traffic Act WA 1974 makes one mention of the word helmet, in the context of bicycle helmets.

    The good gear guide on the WA Transport website (https://www.transport.wa.gov.au/medi...dGearGuide.pdf) states "By law, when riding in Australia, you must wear a motorcycle helmet that complies with the
    standard AS/NZS 1898 and is securely fastened".

    Be interesting to see the outcome if it makes it to court...

    Just the usual cunts being exceptional cunts for a change.

    They might have overstepped the mark a bit this time even if the guy failed the attitude test, nice to see the tools getting some free negative publicity.

    I thought the way the legislation was written, having an improperly done up strap, or wearing a helmet with no safety sticker was classed as not wearing one ?

    A WA police spokesman said while he couldn't comment on a specific case, anyone who disputed a traffic infringement notice could contest the decision in court.

    "If the person believes they were unfairly targeted they can elect to make a complaint through the police complaints and administration centre," he said.

    "The matter will be reviewed by a person independent of the infringing officers' business unit."

    This speaks volumes as to the WA police force's priorities. So much for that useless twat former police minister saying it has never been about collecting money

    It seems a lot are assuming this bloke must be innocent because he's a motorcycle rider...there's plenty of dickheads with no clue riding bikes. How often do you see a LAMS bike go past with the chain so loose you can hear it slapping?

    Hmmm Id have to agree with fine for this , road safety stats suggest that around 30% of fatal bikes crashes involve the helmet being flung off off the victim during the course of the accident..

    As a motorcycle instructor for 9 years and also a trackday coach at RAC for 18 months I was constantly surprised at how often I was required to tell riders to tighten their chin straps.. So too bad so sad for the above rider

    May as well not wear the helmet if its not done up securely !!
