Re: Bicycle helmets and the law
Some studies suggest that bike helmets are counter productive. By making people think that cycling is dangerous, they discourage cycling, whereas the health benefits of cycling far outway the dangers. And helmets might protect someone should they fall on the crown of their head at slow speeds, but won't offer any protection against other, far more common, damage. And certainly not in a collision with a car or lorry.
