Mandatory bicycle helmet laws in Western Australia

Australia’s National Cycling Participation 2019 survey confirms that the equivalent of more than a million fewer people are riding bicycles each week in 2019 than in 2011, and suggests 35.1% fewer Australians aged 9yo+ were cycling each day in 2019 than in 1985/86, despite 62% population growth (see report analysis).

Australia’s largest cycling organisation, the Bicycle Network, has reversed its policy and from 31 October 2018 is recommending a five year trial permitting people older than 17 to choose whether they wear a helmet when riding on footpaths or off-road cycle paths (read recommendation and policy paper).

The recommendation follows a 14 month inquiry which had 19,327 respondents, with 58.3% supporting a change to helmet laws and opinions expressed by Australia’s leading experts on helmet law efficacy (read submissions including the opinion of this website).

It is likely the recommendation will be ignored or given short shrift by Australia’s media

Importing Vehicles into Australia

Do not import a vehicle into Australia before obtaining a vehicle import approval

The importation of a road vehicle (that is nonstandard or does not have an identification plate) without a vehicle import approval is prohibited under the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989. It is an offence with a maximum penalty of 120 penalty units (refer to the Crimes Act 1914 Section 4 for current penalty unit values).

The importation of vehicles to Australia is prohibited except in very specific circumstances. Most vehicles are imported by large manufacturers that invest substantially in research and development to ensure that every new vehicle meets minimum safety standards that maintain the safest possible environment for all road users and our community. Manufacturers wanting to import vehicles to Australia for supply must first obtain an identification plate approval. Information on this process is available from the Department’s Road Vehicle Certification Scheme website.
