The hel­met con­tro­versy

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - HEALTH -

Some peo­ple be­lieve that wear­ing a bi­cy­cle hel­met should not be com­pul­sory. I strongly sup­port wear­ing hel­mets be­cause even though the over­all risk of se­ri­ous in­jury is low, hel­mets pro­vide pro­tec­tion against head in­jury by act­ing as a shock-ab­sorber if there is an im­pact. It sur­prises me that this is con­tro­ver­sial be­cause it seems like a “no-brainer” to me.
