To all the helmet-believers who constantly communicate with me concerning loved ones & people they know who were wearing bicycle helmets that saved their lives,
The dreadful circumstances you describe do not make you better judges of safety protection & in fact could even be said to say make you worse ones.
It never ceases to amaze me that not only have Australian governments not detached themselves from your raw emotion in their policy-making, but that they've continued to disregard any cogent proposal to revoke mandatory bicycle helmet law despite the mountains of evidence that they've never worked.
Manadatory bicycle helmet laws are a blatant failure, & I intend to continue to dress for cycling as I choose, & in the manner I see fit.
Thanks for your concern anyway,
With...(blah! blah! blah!)
From...(blah! blah! blah!)
