Helmets

Research shows that wearing a bicycle helmet reduces the risk of head injury by up to 74 per cent. It is important to wear a helmet whether in the street, in the driveway, a paved area, or on a footpath.

Cyclists, bicycle passengers and scooter riders need to wear a securely fitted and fastened helmet. All helmets must comply with and have the Australian Standard AS/NZS 2063 symbol.

Helmets must be worn when riding:

  • on roads and road-related areas
  • on bike and shared paths in bike lanes
  • in recreational parks
  • in car parks
  • on footpaths.


Police can stop bike and scooter riders and issue a fine or a warning for not wearing an approved bicycle helmet.
