On the motor cycle yes, on the bicycle under protest, the times and

my head.If I fell off highly unlikely to damage, if a vehicle drove over
my head it would not help.
PS there are statistics on bicycle helmets relation to head trauma
figures and their efficacy.


And what do they tell you?

They have already knobbled cycle use with mandated helmets (which some
think good) but bicycle use dropped when it was introduced, if they
mandate fluoro jackets with numbers on the back only the yuppy lycra
crowd would still cycle.

If you insist on riding a pushbike on busy roads, you should have an ace of
spades on your back and a will in your pocket.


Agreed. Never mind all the exhaust fumes...

The jacket sounds a bit over the top - that should be a personal
choice,

Well, something needs to be done with those cyclists who have either
an attitude or are just plain irresponsible in traffic.

If that's true it just shows how dumb most cyclists are.


There is no consensus on whether helmets themselves are effective,
useful, or worth either promotion or compulsion.

Bikeshedding this is unlikely to be productive.

My old Kronan 3vxl herrcykel came with a rear license plate.
It was a gimmick, of course.

Probably only feasible with a rear fender or rack.

Would like to see cars with name, licence number and photo.

Better yet, a solid connection rod between bumper bars and gonads.

THAT would sharpen attention and reflexes of car drivers. Or reduce
their tendency to reproduce!

I cycled with an "L" plate for a couple of years. It was tremendously
effective in making drivers give me space.
