Cycling Helmet Safety and Compulsory Wearing - New Debate Thread


I have closed the sub-forum that previously housed helmet debates and created a single thread for the discussion:

I've locked all prior helmet debate threads and moved them to the parent forum: Advocacy and Cycling Safety

This is the only thread on CycleChat where the helmet debate will now be allowed to take place. Any attempts to discuss it outside of this thread or to sideline other helmet related threads will either be removed, locked, edited or moved into this one.

Discussion Rules:
Normal forum rules apply but these additional rules will take priority in governing The CycleChat Helmet Debate Thread:
  • No personal remarks, dismissive or derisive comments, insults, scorn, mocking, etc. - when replying please focus on the points someone has made. Do not make your reply personal and do not allow your temper to get the better of you if you feel strongly about something someone else has posted. If you feel another post or poster is inapproperiate just report it. Responding with personal remarks or trying to moderate the thread will lead to you being excluded from the discussion for a period of 30 days.

  • No insistence or demands for members to provide evidence or proof - personal experiences and annecdotal evidence is fine in the context of this forum discussion. We're not looking to forumlate laws or prove anything scientific. Insistence will lead to you being excluded for 30 days.

  • No nit-picking, stirring, goading, circular arguments, etc. - please ensure your posts and replies are substantial and either make a point or address the points you are replying to, and do not debate a specific point ad nauseam. Nit-picking, stirring, goading, and circular arguments, etc. will lead to you being excluded for 30 days.

Moderators are going to be allowed some discrection and may choose to post a request in the thread to bring it back on track before applying any exclusions, but the main point to understand is that you risk losing your right to reply if you do not engage politely and properly with other members.

Please be respectful of other people's opinions and choices and be considerate in your replies.
