- Another helmet thread, but bear with me…
Theoretically yes – the little jaunts to the shop, or to return a DVD, wouldn’t happen. But like some others, I’d probably just break the law.
nb IIRC in New Zealand you get an on the spot fine. But as we don’t do on the spot fines, not sure how any law would be enforced.Posted 5 years agowwaswasSubscriber
But as we don’t do on the spot fines
Police regularly issue fixed penalty notices for cycling on Brighton Seafront. IF they’re satisfied they can identify you then they just give you the ticket.
How many people here don;t do any road riding before/during/after an off road one?
I’d wear the helmet and cycle on road as much as I do now. Main reason I don;t is ‘cos I’m lazy not because I feel it’s my ‘right’.Posted 5 years agopslingSubscriber
If the wearing of a helmet whilst riding on the public highway was made compulsory by law, would it reduce the amount of riding you do?
Please, no further debate on the rights and wrongs, etc., just an indication of whether it would alter your time spent on a bike or not.Posted 5 years ago
No. But you are asking a bunch of generally helmet-using folk who are happy to be seen in cycling gear,
And that would be the obvious flaw.
You’re asking cyclists. People keen enough on cycling to spend part of their day reading an internet forum about cycling.
Those are not the people that would be put off cycling by helmets.Posted 5 years ago
