Tim Gill puts it very well.The thing about an accident (incident) when you actually lose control of the vehicle/bike etc or get hit off is that you have realistically no idea how you are going to land. You may just slide, you may roll, you may connect with the kerb, or a vehicle.
Anyone who advocates a lid for their child is automatically acknowledging that a properly fitting lid is going to help reduce the severity of impact.
Yet infant deaths involving cycling represent under 1% of under 4 accidental fatalities meaning there are many other areas we should be worrying about first before cycling.Tragedies happen; child cyclists are killed or left disabled for life; and we cannot let go of the belief that something could and should have been done to stop that particular event from happening
My emphasisAnyone who advocates a lid for their child is automatically acknowledging that a properly fitting lid is going to help reduce the severity of impact.
Mounting and dismounting is more difficult - it is only a matter of time before you forget and try to swing your leg over the seat!Thanks for all the advice.
I think there's a good chance of me dripping the bike just getting on or off!
