Anyone hear about that dumb cop a couple of weeks ago taking helmets away from riders. There's a lawsuit starting because a cop in the lower mainland was pulling over all riders (sport, cruiser and touring). He'd get the rider to take off their helmet and if it wasn't "approved" then he took the helmet away. If the rider tried to ride his/her bike without the helmet, he'd take the bike away. Apparently over 20 bikes were seized in one day.
I'm not a lawyer, but as far as I know you do not have to take a helmet off if a cop asks you unless he is arresting you or has a warrant. I'd confirm that with a lawyer, but that's what I've been told.
Anyone lose their helmet to a cop lately?
