Evidence Supporting Mandatory Bicycle Helmet Laws Questioned

Christie Aschwanden writes at the Washington Post about mandatory bicycle helmet laws. She notes that proponents of these laws say they reduce injuries but that evidence remains mixed with two recent studies coming to differing conclusions. Meanwhile, “even most opponents of mandatory helmet laws advocate helmet use, but they say that the negative consequences of helmet laws outweigh the benefits.” Moreover, both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently removed the claim that helmets eliminate 85 percent of injuries from information given to the public. Aschwanden concludes that helmets should be only part of a larger safety strategy.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
