    And what if people were to start wearing face masks as part of their normal travel routine.

    They'd likely make that illegal :) Maybe it is already. Unless, maybe, if you're Muslim and female ;)

    Oh, great! I'm no criminal but I despise the privacy implications.
    It's not illegal to wear a hijab in Australia, even into banks, but try wearing a motorcycle helmet into a bank...

    Maybe there could be a religion that stipulated wearing of motorcycle helmets ;)

    Funny you talking about banks. Went into mine the other day and saw 4 things listed. Can't remember but 2 of them were sunglasses and hoodies.

    @mirimir well things are so crazy it wouldn't surprise me at all if someone managed to pull that trick and come up smelling like roses while they're at it.

    Motorcycle 'gangs' are not allowed to wear club colours now in at least NSW and QLD.

    Why? Because it tends to trigger fights? But hey, they could get more subtle about their designs.

    They've even been shutting down their clubhouses, but anyway, that's a little OT now.
