Do you think Bicycle helmets should be required by law?

    This is just my opinion but I think there should be a law on bike helmets:

    1. Since bicycles are considered veichles and have the same rights and rules as other road users. It's the law for motorbikes/mopeds to wear helmets. So if we have to the same rights shouldn't cyclists also have to just like motorbikes/moped drivers.
    2. If it was the law. There would be less deaths as most cyclists that die in accidents aren't wearing helmets and die from a brain injury.
    3. Some countries it is the law so why not in all countries to make it fair?

    I always wear my helmet!

    what do you guys think?

    No, absolutely not. You clearly have little grasp of the facts.
    You are either trolling or have not read the 'Helmet thread'.
    @Moderators - you can close this now or merge with the 'Helmet' thread.

    People who advocate helmet compulsion are campaigning for the end of cycling.

    He is only 18, so perhaps a teensy bit of slack is permissible :smile:

    I always wear a cycle cap. It's saved my life on a few occasions.
    Ditch the silly plastic hats and wear a cap instead. It makes sense.

    I wear a helmet...and NO, it most definitely should not be made compulsory. I value freedom.
