Suppressing cycling in Australia

Supporters of UKIP and members of the Association of British Drivers will be delighted to hear that in Australia impressive efforts are being made to smash cycling and drive these pests off the road.

The fine for not wearing a helmet has jumped to $146 - which is likely to bring in at least $1 million in revenue for the state government this financial year.

Last year, when the fine was $58, there were 6600 cyclists fined.

The officer in charge of Victoria Police's bicycle unit, Sergeant Arty Lavos, said
cyclists without a helmet were a particular focus.

And for a terrifying picture of complete cycling anarchy, where not a single cyclist is wearing a helmet, take a look at these shocking scenes.
