[Cyclelicious] New comment on Ride helmetless and lose your bike?!.

Sweet William has left a new comment on your post "Ride helmetless and lose your bike?!":

Australia has had mandatory helmet laws for long enough that statistics are starting to be meaningful

There's a bunch of discussion - the key outcomes are:
* helmets help avoid head injuries
* mandatory helmets cause massive drops in participation
* increased participation is the single best way of improving safety
