Background Info

As a citizen and regular cyclist in Scotland, in particular where I live in the City of Edinburgh, I am shocked at the amount of people (of all ages) that I see cycling without a helmet. I feel strongly that this is a basic requirement of protection when on a bike. As an anaesthetist, I have seen people with devastating head injuries as a result of cycling accidents. The Guardian released an article (2016) stating "A major study of bike helmet use around the world from more than 64,000 cyclists has found helmets reduce the risks of a serious head injury by nearly 70%". 

Moving forward where, in the City of Edinburgh there will be further developments of the tram lines and services which we know pose risks to cyclists, I feel that the introduction of legislation or a national information campaign will help reduce the amount of fatal head injuries to cyclists.
