Bicycle Helmet Regulations

With the nicer weather this time of year people are eager to get out and about on your bicycles.  While bicycles are a fast and fun way to get around we have to remember to wear our helmets.  The New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Act requires that all individuals operating a bicycle wear a helmet that complies with the regulations set out by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and safety.  Anyone over the age of 16 operating a bicycle who fails to wear a helmet commits an offence and may be ticketed.  Stay safe and have fun!
