Is it really better not to have laws to make bicyclists wear helmets? I must admit, I’m in two minds about it. There certainly are arguments for and against it. Btw, that’s a controversial discussion in my native Germany, too, with, strangely as it seems, the ADFC [General German Bicyclists’ Club] campaigning against the law. Their argument: fining bicyclists for not wearing a helmet might reduce the number of people who use bicycles, especially for commuting.
