How to Steal a Moped in England

Answer: Don't wear a helmet!(via Overlawyered)

Police refused to chase a thief who had stolen a moped because
the youth was not wearing a helmet, the victim said yesterday.

Max Foster, 18, said officers told him they feared being sued if
the thief fell off the moped and injured himself....

The Association of Chief Police Officers said: "There is no blanket ban on
calling off chases where a rider has no helmet, however most forces will adopt
similar stances."
