POLL OF THE WEEK SHOULD CYCLISTS HAVE TO WEAR HELMETS?
A REVIEW of bike safety may mean that everyone who rides a bike on a UK road must legally wear a helmet and a high-visibility jacket.
A Government consultation in January will look at safety rules, after more than 100 cyclists were killed on British roads last year. More than 3,300 cyclists were seriously injured.
A recent study found that 70% of cyclists who regularly cycle on the road already wear helmets. Some critics think that the new rules would make fewer people want to use bikes as a mode of transport.
