Melbourne, Australia has become the latest major city to roll out a public bike hire scheme – but civic leaders have had to make special provisions due to its compulsory helmet wearing laws.
Roads minister Tim Pallas said Victoria's state helmet laws had made the scheme ''challenging''. Users will have to bring their own helmets as they won’t be available for hire with the bikes. However, those joining the scheme will be issued with a free helmet, while hotels and other city outlets will have cheap helmets available for hire or purchase.
