Cycle helmet compulsion again....
By user12625760 on Oct 16, 2007
Like a broken record an attempt to reduce the numbers of cyclists by making cycle helmets compulsory has turned up as a 10 minute rule bill the the House of Commons:
As with the best attempts to deter behaviour this just targets those below the age of 17. If you can stop then cycling young then they should be saved from ever taking it up. Once again time to write to your MP. For those who still believe cycle helmets are effective, and I wish that they were, see http://cyclehelmets.org for the depressing reality that the only thing they are effective at doing is reducing the levels of cycling. They don't have magic properties that allow polystyrene to protect cyclists from the effects of being hit by motor vehicles.
