People who use bicycles are no safer with helmet laws

Even as the doors to our 'lab cage' are slowly being prised open, we remain huddled in a corner...

...not for us the big wide world of 'grown-up-land'!!!!

How disappointing it is to see populism continuously trump scientific evidence and facts here in Australia - & why is it that British doctors think otherwise?


  1. There are those in Britain who think helmet laws are a good idea no matter how much you tell them otherwise (see the comment).

  2. Unbelievable, Kim!!! - so depressing that fellow citizens send out such ringing endorsements for questionable products that have arrived on the scene only equipped with spin and next to no evidence of their merchantable quality - grrrr!

  3. The local newspapers are generally filled with reports about cases being
    contested by representatives from various compensation law firms so much so
    that any tourist scanning over the city newspaper supplements is bound to be
    a bit surprised by the prominent face of these law firms.
