Rules in foreign countries are not always the same ones in Japan. And even if we ride on bicycles, we sometimes have to wear helmets. Otherwise, we have to pay a fine.

In Singapore when we throw away chewing gum, we have to pay a fine. Today I would like to write about such a story.

A police officer saw a group of cyclists running one afternoon in Australia, and because he found one guy who did not wear a helmet, he intervened in the group as a routine. To his surprise the guy without a helmet was Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, Hollywood star.

It is reported that Mr. Schwarzenegger was in Australia to attend the sports event “Arnold Classic” and Formula 1.

In Japan the wearing of a helmet is not mandatory according to the Road Traffic Act, but it is necessary for people to wear helmets when they ride on bicycles according to a Victoria’s law in Australia.

Fortunately the police officer made him pay a fine. Instead of paying a fine, Schwarzenegger was told to buy a helmet at a convenience store nearby, and he bought a less than 5 dollar helmet. It is not clear that Schwarzenegger said "I'll be back" wearing a helmet, but everyone, please wear a helmet when you ride on a bicycle in Australia.
