Queensland adults will soon be able to ride bikes without having to wear helmets in a move expected to put pressure on other States, including WA, to follow.

Queensland Parliament’s transport, housing and local government committee recommended a two-year trial that would exempt bike riders over 16 from wearing helmets in parks, on footpaths and cycle paths and on roads with a speed limit of 60km/h or less.

Greens MLC Lynn MacLaren said she would introduce similar legislation in WA.
