Step away from the Nanny State
What I love about this ? Let me count the ways ...
Rowers on the canal; no visible safety-wear. No high-vis abominations, no helmets, no lifejackets.
Cyclists; no helmets, riding two-abreast. No lycra, no high-vis, wearing normal clothes and shoes.
The canal itself; not fenced off. No warning signs. No restrictions on going near the edge.
In Australia our Nanny-State cockwombles would have a coronary at all this trust placed in the adult taxpayers of NSW.
