In an earlier story published 10 July, 2022 we claimed the maximum penalty for not wearing an approved cycle helmet to be at Level 2, ie $5,000 and three months prison.
In fact, with the release of the English documents today, we find this was a mistake, with that penalty to be levied at motorcycle and motor-tricycle passengers.
For bicycle riders the maximum fine will be set at Level 1, a $2,000 fine and no prison.
We apologise for the error, which came from a mis-translation of documents previously only available in Chinese.
