I'm surprised at this. Its a clear safety benefit. I'm all for optional helmets on cycleways that are car free, but cycleways that are on roads should have helmets. The articles "appears" to promote a desire for no enforced helmets at all.

 

Its hardly a nanny state problem IMHO.

About two or three times a year I choose to slow myself down on my mountainbike using my helmet.
Vehicle tariffs were phased out by about 1990. Used imports went from 3000 units in 1985 to 85,000 on 1990 so the bike as transport was probably losing popularity

I went to school with a kid who went over the handle bars without a helmet. 

He wishes he'd worn a helmet. The brain injury he sustained has ruined his life.....
