Aren't NZ coppers wonderful
« on: December 23, 2009, 03:28:54 PM »

From the Coastal News police report: "Two naked men were located riding bikes on Port Rd in Whangamata on December 7. They were warned for not wearing helmets."

Excellent.  :-))

If this happened in the UK, they would have been arrested for breaching the Sexual Offences Act, labelled as sex offenders, and forced to sign the Sex Offenders register.

Why would you think it unusual for men to ride bicycles naked? I live in the next town over from Whangamata and (unlike some parts of the world) it does not snow here, in fact the forcast for Xmas day is 24 degrees, very pleasant weather for naked cycling. Ian.

Last time I was over there at Christmas it was 30 degrees so you've got it a bit cold at the moment.

Was speaking to the rest of my family in Wellsford last night and they thought it a bit chilly. O0

Coromandel is another place you would only get a ticket for no helmet, but they may check you out for sunscreen too.
