Contrary to popular opinion, helmet promotion is simply not commensurate with any health, transport or carbon-reducing initiatives. Further,the rationale that the helmet law is there to protect us from harm, has been exposed for what it is - an expedient and manipulative media-byte designed to deflect community scrutiny from our government's appalling record in health and transport.
By deftly passing the cost of 'bicycle safety' onto consumers instead of investing our taxes into true infrastructure, our government has cheaply abrogated their representative responsibilities...
...only thing is, it has cost our community dearly over the past 20 years.
