(TreeHugger)   More people suffer serious head injuries in car accidents than in bike accidents. So why do all the mandatory helmet laws only target bicyclists?   (treehugger.com ) divider line

kidakita: Barfmaker: One of my Facebook "friends" posted a link to this the other day. He's always "that guy". He's a vegan, anti-GMO, anti global warming, anti bike lane (I don't quite get how that works but apparently they make cycling more dangerous through some twisted logic).

A while back he posted an excellent piece about how a lot of people believe things that aren't scientifically factual and since then he hasn't posted a single thing about GMO. Pretty sure I heard an audible *click*.

It's kind of a shame because for the longest time all I ever had to do to know the right answer to something was to pick the opposite of what he was saying. Oh well, all good things and all that.

No. Not a cool story. It went from bicycles to GMOs for no rhyme or reason. Does Monsanto issue you your paychecks?


No, I believe in science. Go be fundie somewhere else. Oh look, Jesus is calling, it's for you.

Day_Old_Dutchie: CruJones: We already have seatbelt laws, which are the car equivalent to helmet laws.  I'd be interested to see if seatbelts and helmets save money, I've always heard the anecdotal evidence that they can cause more money spent, as people without helmets (specifically motorcycles) and seatbelts are more likely to die and not need critical care.  No idea if true, but I'm ok with it being a personal choice/risk.

It's complicated..depending how you look at the problem,

Of course the is the land down under. Where just about everything is out to kill you.


Yeah they need to legislate power armor suits in that place.

Maybe I'm clueless, but where in the world is it required that an adult wear a helmet to ride a bicycle?  I ride a lot and sometimes go without a lid.  My reasoning is I want to feel the wind blow through my hair once more, before it's gone.

Clearly, some sort of face protection is necessary. And -- depending on how delicate your hand is -- maybe gloves.

Ah, another lesson in how to lie with statistics.

How many car accidents occur every year?  How many multiple-passenger cars are there?  In the USA alone, hundreds of thousands, if not millions?  How many bicycle accidents? A few thousand?  So does it stand to reason that there are more head injuries in car accidents than head injuries in bike accidents?

Why am I bothering to type this since you're just trolling anyway.
