The Compulsory Helmet Both Highway And Urban Roads
Now that the issue of mandatory or not of the use of the helmet within cities is hot, you want me to make a new sequel about this controversial friend who has no other pretension that protect our fragile brain mass, among others.
That I have nothing to say that I am a great lover of the sport from the pedal, so there is no first anything that you want less to be scrutinizing in laws and regulations.
Well, once made the confession, I have to say that I thought that the use of the helmet was absolutely mandatory in every time and place.
He has been following the controversy about them that I’ve heard its not mandatory in urban displacements.
I prefer on their obligation, so I defend that all cities have bike path, and urban or historic town centre is banned to motor vehicles.
If I had the authority to give advice, it would be simply not overtake on the inside, right side of large buses and trucks vehicles. That recommendation could make a great difference and significantly reduce deaths caused by trampling of cyclists.
It is not a good idea to wear a bicycle helmet if it catches a bus giving a twist to the right.
Critics argue that if you had compulsory helmet, it would produce a significant fall in rates of cycle, with little real impact in the reduction of mortality rates. The decline in the use of the bicycle would have an adverse impact on the health of the population, which exceeds any benefit from better protection in crashes. The lower numbers of the cycle can make roads even more vulnerable to cyclists. On the other hand cycle helmet promotion loses point for the safety of cycle. The real key is to prevent accidents in the first place.
Likewise, it could be argued that it is not only the cyclists who suffer head injuries, more head injuries are suffered by pedestrians and people in passenger cars, which makes the call to the end the compulsion?
Spain is the fourth European country with most cycling accidents. He said the current Director of the DGT, María Seguí. Cautious, he hastened to ask for caution and avoid falling into alarmisms when evaluating the accidents where a cyclist was involved.
The conclusion of his speech argued for the promotion of safe use of the bicycle and the way to get it passed by cohabitation with vehicles and the expansion of the use of the helmet.
Of the nearly 3,500 cyclists took place in 2011, sixty-seven ended with the death of the cyclist accidents. The number is certainly shocking, but the details are more shocking still: almost all of them occurred in road, where the use of the helmet is obligatory.
However, in the city, where bicycle use has continued to grow in recent years and the helmet is not mandatory, pedal fatal accidents have decreased.
Then… why Director raises the helmet as a solution if the problem lies elsewhere? No through any manufacturer of helmets?
After seeing in a palpable way the level of corruption of our politicians do not see a far-fetched idea.
Helmets Are Limited In Their Ability To Protect Cyclists.
There are numerous studies on the potential of the use of the helmet bicycle, as any set of studies, can be selective to find statistics that support your position. But, I think it is fair to say that, altogether, helmets can play a role in harm reduction for certain types of bicycle injuries. However, there are also many accidents bicycle in which helmets could not save the life. Without a doubt, these can only be helpful in certain circumstances.
The parent to measure the degree of protection is low-velocity impact test.
“Helmets are designed to protect against injuries, while rider advances to 23 km/h (13 mph) for a fall on the ground.”
In a very good article by Owen Jones in The Independent, he cited this statistic:
“A study of 100 reports on mortality of the police, the Department of transportation suggested that the use of helmets could have avoided a 10 to 16 per cent of the deaths, but the sample was too small to count as conclusive evidence.”
Even a 10 percent improvement to save lives is strong stimulation to wear a helmet. To put it in context, there are about 110 deaths in accidents in bike each year. If this study has some accuracy, perhaps 10 to 20 could have avoided using it on the bike. It is enough to make me wear a helmet.
But in the broader context of fatalities, for example, deaths from obesity or lack of exercise, is quite little in proportion.
Mandatory Reduces The Use Of Bike
In the cities of Australia and Canada, where helmets have become compulsory, the use of bicycles has been reduced. According to the statistical data, the use of the bicycle since 1986 to 2011 had been reduced by almost 38 percent.
Costs Of Care
This reduction in the practice of cycling can have several costs of health such as: increased risk of diseases of the heart and obesity.
Therefore, the highest priority of the society should be to try to promote greater physical activity among young people. Yes, cycling has inherent risks, but we can not forget to put in front of a computer, game console, eating fast food every day… is also a risk of much larger and hidden that we cannot forget on a medium to long-term view.
This argument says that if people always wore a helmet, they feel more confident and more willing to take risks. This calms people in a sense of the fall of the security. If the cyclists feel vulnerable will have more care, the best way to protect against serious injury. On the other hand, it could be argued the people who wear helmets to assess your security whenever they have the same probability to move responsibly, if not more.
Drivers Change Their Behavior When Cyclists Used Helmet?
Some studies have claimed that the use of a helmet encourages drivers to pass closer to the riders.If you see them without protection, drivers are more likely to give way to them.
It is interesting that the strongest of the calls for mandatory helmets often come from motorists. In fact, some drivers feel really annoying if the riders do not wear helmets. Maybe concentrate on driving rather than waiting for that bad expertise be saved by a simple helmet.
Cycle Of Culture And Deaths
Countries with lowest percentage in displacement in bike have the highest percentage in the use of helmets.
The use of the helmet in the Netherlands is very low. However, deaths per kilometre is only 20 million euros. This compares with the United States, where 38% in the helmet, but the deaths per kilometre of more than EUR 100 million is – five times higher than in the United States.
There are many ways to interpret this. However, greater use of helmet is only a factor of very limited in the determination of mortality rates.
The use of helmet statistics Australia
If you want to reduce mortality rates and improve the safety of the cycle, the key is to create an environment, infrastructure and culture that supports the practice of cycling.
Bicycle helmet can help a small % of the accidents. But the real key is the prevention of accidents in the first place. (Legacy for biking)
Helmet for cyclists can help in some accidents. The use of mandatory helmet likely which can significantly reduce the use of the bike as means of transport.
When I see adults without helmets part of me think – it’s good to have confidence to move on Spanish roads, without armored plates
When I see the children without helmets, I always think of how vulnerable a child’s head, and wish to take a wearing helmet.
It really worries me that people with little experience in cycling because riders if you don’t have a helmet.
For example: a cyclist dies from a broken vertebra because a car ran into him and left him the column, but the judge rejected the argument because a cyclist not wearing helmet. Absurd isn’t it? Good paddling! !!
