MoreOrLess Podcast on helmet evidence

Postby Kevin K » 3 Sep 2010, 3:21pm

The Radio 4 statistics programme, MoreOrLess, ran an interesting piece recently on the evidence for and against wearing a helmet. It was prompted by the lack of helmets supplied with "Boris Bikes". The result was inconclusive, to say the least, but it was interesting to hear an objective, if necessarily limited (it's not a long programme), review of the subject.

You can listen to the podcast here.

That's good; I've just updated the podcast so will be able to listen on the way home.

I caught it on the car radio. Much better than last weeks edition.
