Helmet law isn’t only route to safety for bike riders
February 15, 2015
There are two schools of thought on bicycle safety in California.
One holds that the best way to make roads safer for cycling is to fill them with cyclists.
The other is less idealistic. California roads, this argument goes, weren’t built for sharing, and human bodies weren’t built to withstand two tons of steel at 60 mph on asphalt. Therefore, bicyclists should be shielded via bike lanes and protective gear.
