Greetings. Just finished work at my embarassing maccas job, and did my usual thing of moving the bike from behind the locked gate out the back of the store out to the front of the carpark. Now also my usual thing would be to suit up, unlock the gate, roll it out, then a very slow ride around the front of the carpark, park it, go back through the restaurant, lock the gate again, then sit down for a cheap feed, then go grab the helmet from the change room and bugger off home. Now before i get into the point of the post, i want to say that im well aware of the dangers of not wearing a helmet, and that you can easily have accidents close to work/home etc etc. I would call what i do a calculated risk as im extremely unlikely at the times that i work to get hit by anyone (this doesnt mean its impossible dont get me wrong) and its just plain a pain in the arse to get all tied down just to move the bike around the front. For me its just like moving it from one end of your own property to the other. Anyhoo, tonight, as ive done this, as i came to the front of the store, a divvy van rolls into the carpark, disco lights come on instantly as hes assuming ive come off public road without a helmet (no qualms here, if i were in his shoes i would have assumed the same) I got off the bike, opened my jacket with my maccas shirt still on, waggled the managers keys and said sorry guys, just moving it from out the back to the front, he had no issues with this at all and didnt even talk to me about it, just went about his business. The issue was when i got back inside, where the night manager (A complete freaking biatch with a chip on her shoulder and an ego to match) who already had 3 seperate staff members all lined up ready to slap her that night starts having a go quite simply just to be contrary and to well.. be her. Anyhow shes just come out with "Well they should have booked you, youre a ******** for doing that, i would have booked you, next time wear your helmet idiot" I eventually shut her up by saying "Yes, if i had come off a public road without it, they would have every right to, yes its stupid riding without a helmet, it is not stupid moving the bike from one end of a property to the other, and besides, Our carpark is private property and as i had not left private property there is nothing he could do anyway" Well that shut her the hell up and she just turned her back and walked off, but it does beg the question... am i actually correct there. Because when i think about it im not sure! Technically it is private property, but it is permanently open to the public, so dickheads doing burnouts etc will always get done if caught. Also is having no helmet on in a carpark illegal or not? I know its illegal out on the roads (and quite rightly) But not so sure on this one.... what do you all think?
