Can Bike Shares Survive in a Land with Mandatory Bike Helmet Laws?

This video bring together the two controversial topics of bike helmet laws and bike sharing programs. These issues surrounding these topics collide (apologies for the pun) with the Melbourne Cycle Share Program. This video explores the results tossing around a variety of statistics. It’s my belief that the only appropriate mandate of helmet laws would a coupling of these laws with a very robust government support of cycling. If the government is going to put dampers on the personal freedoms of cycling and how people choose to do it, they should offset the down side of this by investing heavily in cycling infrastructure and making it as easy as possible for everyone to get a helmet.
