The Associated Press reports a tale of helmet enforcement that to my mind misses a point.
A police officer in New Zealand nabbed a pair of cyclists out for a little night ride in the nude. The constable sent the duo home for helmets.
While nudity is a chargeable offense in the twon of Whangamata, the constable was cutting the men a break at the start of beach party season. Helmets, while well and good, are not going to prevent road rash and a not-so-fresh feeling if any balance issues or falls happen, however. OW.
