Please sign this petition in the hope that the Government will listen and make cycling helmets a legal requirement on public roads.
It is a legal requirement to wear a seatbelt in a car, therefore cyclists should take some responsibility for their own safety as well as others.
Why is this important?
Wearing a helmet does not mean you can be reckless but helmets provide some protection for your head, brain and face whilst riding your bicycle.
In the event you fall or crash whilst riding, it has been proven time and time again that helmets reduce or prevent serious head injuries or even death.
More and more people are refusing to wear helmets as they are not cool, helmets are not a fashion accessory they are there for your safety, the cost of a helmet is a small price to pay to prevent serious injury, please keep this in mind
