We need to make wearing a helmet compulsory for everyone using a pedal bike. Too many people suffer severe or deadly injuries while using a bike on the roads without wearing a helmet. Our roads are faster and busier than ever before so we need a law to be passed to keep people safer.
Why is this important?
My son has just lost a school friend in a tragic road accident this week whilst he was cycling to school Tuesday morning. A car and Tyler collided and he sadly sustained fatal injuries, sadly a helmet was not worn.
This MUST stop.
On spot fines or confiscate cycles if a helmet is not wore by the cyclist. Helmets should be the norm, to make it less trendy for these teenagers to go without one. Everyone will be in the same boat so it becomes less of a stigma.
