Is cycling drunk illegal?
It is illegal to ride your bike under the influence of drink or drugs, and you would be guilty of this if you were unfit to ride to such an extent as you are incapable of having proper control of the bicycle. You would be committing an offence whether you were on a footpath or on the road.
Is cycling without lights illegal?

Are more expensive bike helmets safer?
The long answer: First and foremost, there is no difference in safety between the $30 helmet and the $200 helmet. In order for them to be legally sold as bicycle helmets, all must meet the same safety regulations. So basically, you’re paying for two things: looks and comfort.
How much should I spend on a bike helmet?
For a few more dollars–the $50-$70 range, you get protection, with more style and comfort. The helmet may have an internal harness to fine tune fit, even if it’s a simple one.
Are full face bike helmets safer?
The biggest benefit when using a full–face helmet is the protection it provides. By wearing them, you’ll be guaranteed higher levels of protection than with open–face helmets. The hard shell will ensure your brain, chin, teeth, and face won’t suffer from major injuries if you fall.
How do I choose a bike helmet?
A good-fitting helmet should be snug but not annoyingly tight. It should sit level on your head (not tilted back) with the front edge one inch or less above your eyebrows so that your forehead is protected. Push the helmet from side to side and back to front.
What should I look for when buying a bike helmet?
Your helmet should allow for good all-around vision as well as protection. The upper straps should form a ‘V’ shape just beneath the ear, and with the helmet on, you should not be able to fit more than two fingers between the chin strap and your chin.
Why are bike helmets so expensive?
R&D costs (plus marketing) are probably a significant part of the cost of higher end helmets that do everything they can to maximize some combination of safety, comfort, fit, and aerodynamics, while minimizing weight.
