    I can see it happening at some point with much anguish and gnashing of teeth.
    When Motorcycle helmets, seat belts, ABS, airbags were made mandatory the amount of rage quitting was about the same as when celebs leave the country if party A wins the election.

    I get that helmets are debatable but how is it any different from compulsory seatbelt use, for example? Both are compulsory safety features.

    What the evidence will say will be decided well before its measured.

    Different newspapers are disagreeing over the likelihood of it happening. I don't think it's terribly likely, but that authoritative news source, Planet Rock Radio, are making it sound a fait acompli. We must remain vigilent.

    Hopefully that will be the case. The trouble is there's a history of policy-based evidence being used in a lot of places. One good thing is that the Tories do tend to be somewhat more libertarian and anti-regulation and "elf-n-saftety gorn maad" type stuff. Left-wingers tend to be more nanyish anout this sirt of thing. Neither side are better on making decisions based on evidence or reason rather than conviction. For the avoidance of doubt I'm left leaning politically but on this issue I fear my own side more than the Tories. That said, they could still support it as part of a Daily Mail anti cyclist agenda

    That's exactly the sort of thing that concerns me.

    Whoops, I get a message from BT that the site I linked to is unsafe, can't edit the link out yet but trust me you don't need a helmet on a trike.

    Just heard that all cyclists have to wear their lucky underpants too.
