Help: Cycling With Helmets

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) is currently conducting a poll on the wearing of cycle helmets (closes 17/04/11).

I will be honest and make clear I wear a helmet most of the time but am absolutely against legislation forcing mandatory helmet use. I suspect most readers will share my sentiments. As the poll is open to anyone I urge you to take a few minutes to complete it. 

Lets not go the way of Australia. We are fat enough already (as a nation!).


  1. Thanks for heads up on this, I've completed mine too. I wear a helmet too, but no way I would accept a compulsory law for wearing one. I'd rather see progress of provision of segregated cycling infrastructure :)

  2. Great minds think alike!
