Cycling road safety helmet

Transport Minister Jesse Norman has said that a review will take place in the New Year in which the government will consider whether helmets and high visibility apparel should become compulsory for all cyclists. This move comes after a study found more than 100 cyclists were killed on British roads last year, which marks a 5% increase since the previous year. 

A study commissioned by helmet company Lid Helmets found that only 70.5 per cent of cyclists riding on busy roads regularly wear a helmet. It is widely debated whether road deaths could be reduced by cyclists wearing helmets, or whether something deeper is at play, and tougher punishments for dangerous driving should be put in place. Sam Jones of Cycling UK said, "the effectiveness of helmets is not the black-and-white issue many think it is."
