I'm sorry if this has been discussed on here already. The following paragraph is a useful riposte to a current Highway Code tweet:
He was wearing a helmet, had bright lights on the front and rear of his bicycle and on the back of his rucksack, he also was wearing clothes with reflective strips on. He was doing everything right as a cyclist to stay safe.
A tractor driver failed to see Gareth before it was too late. He hit Gareth from behind, killing him instantly.
Gareth's helmet was destroyed on impact, resulting in a fatal head injury.
If Gareth stood no chance with a helmet on, what chance do others stand when not wearing a helmet?
And here's the current tweet:

The world hasn't got any more intelligent so far in 2019.
