Uk Lawyers? Motor-Cycle Crash Helmets (Religious Exemption) Act 1976

Recommended Posts

Was just reading the Laws governing Dastar in UK, and how they might apply to Singhni in UK that wore Dastar? The main line in contention is: "(2A) A requirement imposed by regulations under this section (whenever made) shall not apply to any follower of the Sikh religion while he is wearing a turban. Any thoughts?

An Act to exempt turban-wearing followers of the Sikh religion from the requirement to wear a crash-helmet when riding a motor-cycle.

(15th November 1976)

BE IT ENACTED by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows :-

Amendment of Road Traffic Act 1972.

1972c. 20

1. In section 32 of the Road Traffic Act 1972 there shall be inserted after subsection (2) the following new subsection :-

"(2A) A requirement imposed by regulations under this section (whenever made) shall not apply to any follower of the Sikh religion while he is wearing a turban."

2. This Act may be cited as the Motor-Cycle Crash-Helmets (Religious Exemption) Act 1976.

    • Do you have any stats to prove that all black perpetrators that are killed by police encounters are racially motivated.  Maybe some of them are not racially motivated.
    • I think Dasam Granth encourages us to gather wisdom and have wits for navigating this material experience.
    • Yes, let’s try gather wisdom, even though Guru told you wisdom won’t go with you. Sehas Siaanapaa Lakh Hohi Th Eik N Chalai Naal || With simran you can take a book, place 1 hand underneath, 1 hand on top and close your eyes. In minutes you can read the whole book then recite it back from heart afterwards.  Infinite power comes from simran. Please don’t waste your life trying to ‘find wisdom’ from books 🤦🏼‍♂️ Been thinking about this recently, 99% Sikhs haven’t got a clue what Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught. We know about rehat, banaa, maryada, 5ks (things with purpose) - which all came later. But teaching Guru Nanak Ji gave - Shabad Guru Surat Dhun Chela ~ How many of us can explain what Surat is? 1% maybe? My new project will discuss such things Coming Soon... #GurbarAkaal
    • I don't agree. Sure, we might not have the ease and comfort of categorisation along the western introduced binary/dual model. But I'm pretty sure that Sikhi can be demarcated along lines that aren't dumbed down and simplistic like that.   I've often said that the main difference between Hindu matt and Sikhi matt is Sikhi's militaristic egalitarian social vision. Abrahamising or westernising (which are both frameworks built upon binary/duality) Sikhi isn't any sort of solution. Pandering to the lowest intellectual denominator of the panth is stunting our development. As well as reaching down to such people, we have to drag them upwards too (no easy task given certain elements of the panth).    And look at how the example of Dusserha in Sikhi works. It's brought into a Sikh framework for the Sikhi agenda. It's clearly repurposed and adapted to Sikh needs and ideals. It's not some sort of blurring or compromise. 
    • The so called good cops are standing quietly behind the blue line backing their comrades who commit racially motivated murder etc. When their voice is the loudest about abhorrent police practices, then they'll be good cops. Until then they're complicit.
