List of bicycle infringements from 2010/11

According to NSW infringement records from 2010/11, riding your bicycle in an “incorrect position” could cost you $54, oh, and all you Strava dudes and dudettes getting out of your saddle trying to smash your K/QOMs on that uphill segment, watch out, you might be accused of not sitting astride your saddle ($54).

Joking aside, there are some serious insights in this little dataset. 6,533 riders in NSW either weren’t wearing a helmet or didn’t have one fastened. That was 70% of infringements in 2010/2011. Here they all are, some are funny “riding furiously” and there seems to be a bias to keep riders from changing lanes to over take too (Not keep left of centre two-way road).

We’re guessing a big earner going forward will be the targeting of recreational and commuter riders being spot checked for ID?
