Sydney polls support overturn of helmet law

Polls in the Sydney Morning Herald suggest that most people in this part of New South Wales would like to see the state's helmet law repealed.

In the first poll in September 2010, 53% of respondents voted to overturn the law with 47% for keeping it. There were 10,569 votes.

The second poll in November 2010 was smaller but produced a near-identical result. 54% of the 5,050 votes were cast to repeal the law, 46% to keep it.

In September, Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney, said that she thinks the time is right for a review of compulsory helmet legislation.
