New helmet law for bikes

From next week, 22nd March 2017, it will be mandatory for children under 12 years old to wear a helmet when riding a bike or being carried on one as a passenger. Any accompanying adult who allows children onto a bicycle without a helmet could be fined up to 135 euros.
We are reminded that this could catch out unwary holidaymakers and their children. Perhaps bicycle hire companies will insist on providing helmets to their clients.
