‘Appalled’ by bike helmet views
11:20am Saturday 14th July 2012 in Letters
I WAS appalled to read the comments of a so-called cycling campaigner, Paul Hepworth, regarding the wearing of cycle helmets.
He advocates that the wearing of a cycle helmet only offers limited protection to one part of the body.
What chance do parents have of convincing their children to wear this most essential safeguard when Mr Hepworth states a helmet is as much use as an eggshell?
Should helmets have been available a few years ago a dear relative would not have lost her life from a cycling accident which resulted in head injuries.
