...my refusal to wear a helmet is informed
This piece from a Murdoch rag is just more corporatist helmet propaganda masquerading as scientific reseach under a academic veil.
There was this piece the day before that I saw in the Canberra Times...pure spin :(http://www.canberratimes.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/bike-helmet-critics-not-using-their-heads-20121003-26yvc.htmlI think the forces of evil intend to match our attempts at positive publicity blow for blow
I think you're dead right!!!
Judging by other numbers I've seen from Australia, if the number of head injuries has been halved, that means the number of cyclists is about a quarter of what it used to be.They never talk about that side of the helmet laws, do they?
Hello Sue, I hope your German's as good as your French. I just read this:http://fahrradzukunft.de/14/wirksamkeit-von-fahrradhelmen/It is one of the best and clearest articles I have read.It's in the April edition of the German publication "Fahrrad Zukunft" (Bicycle Future).
Hello Edward, my german is hopeless (impressive re yours!), but I did manage to read it in google translate!!! - very interesting - why are so we inexplicably committed to bicycle helmet law?
god my english reads like google translate - that should read: 'why are we so inexplicably...blah blah blah...'
