Did you stop cycling after the helmet law?  Did that mean you did less physical exercise, and might be suffering health problems as a result?

Did you believe the hype that “helmet save lives”, then started to take more risks when riding, until you had a crash?  Would you have had such a crash without the false sense of safety provided by your helmet?

Has the helmet law has been beneficial or harmful to you?

  1. Thank you for the opportunity to share my story. I am still riding my bycicle and will continue to do so helmet law or not. I will not let some silly law deter me from keeping healthy and fit. I do not like wearing the helmet and from what I have researched I do not believe they save lives. To the contrary. how can a piece of syrofoam protect our skulls from injury. Ride responsibily is the key. I just wear the helmet to keep the police officers happy and no-one else. I would like to see the law changed to how it used to be – no law – let’s ride free style. Like in other parts of the world and then more people would be out riding and keeping fit and healthy.

  2. I stopped riding when the bicycle helmet law was introduced. I switched to motorized transport. I didn’t realize it at the time, but cycling to work and to the shops was my only form of exercise. Since then, I have put on weight, and my health has been deteriorating. My doctor tells me I should excercise, but there is no practical way to do it. I am struggling with health issues. I wish I hadn’t been forced to stop riding 20 years ago.
