Very good, but let's move on from the Venn diagram now please.
The metallic-looking part of the chart is the countries which mandate bicycle helmet use. You really need to think about just why they're in the minority, don't you?
Pie, now I think that should be mandatory on a ride. Yum yum
I quite liked it, despite my earlier sarcasm
It already is.....you're just going on the wrong rides ;-)
It's been tried but didn't really get critical mass. All we need is the AA, RAC and some well-meaning fools at safety charities to get behind this like certain foolish cycling organisations and safety charities did bicycle helmets, then persuade some retailer to stock them, police and government to recommend them and so on, and sponsor some motor racing drivers and others to go on TV saying how they would never drive any car without one:
Or alternatively, we could try doing stuff that actually reduces road casualties. I think a problem is that cyclists are just too blasted nice and not willing to make motoring horrible just to reduce the numbers of motorists rather than reduce casualty rates.
