New Crash Helmet from the USA??

  1. Just looking into getting a new helmet from the USA - but of course they won't carry the correct AS1698 safety label.

    My question is "Has anyone been stopped or fined by the cops for wearing a helmet without the correct AS1698 certification labels fitted?"

    Now the exchange rate is very competitive with the USA the local helmet prices are just daylight robbery!

    Obviously I'm not looking at getting a helmet built to a lower safety spec - I want a SNELL compliant helmet with exceeds all local testing standards.

    Comments please?
