Papers! Schnell! Victoria Police check for pushbike riders more than 5Ks away from their approved home
Saturday, 29 August 2020
It is not a requirement for citizens in Australia to carry identity papers, so I'd be interested to know the legal basis on which this roadblock/identity-checking operation has been established.
It's a different situation for drivers of motorcars and motorbikes who must carry a licence with them - but not pushbike riders.

Police check the IDs of cyclists in St Kilda to check if they’re within 5km of home. The ADF and police are monitoring beaches, and the police are using drones in St Kilda.pic.twitter.com/ZxF3A8uajK
