Is the sky going to fall on Queensland road safety? It seems like bleak days are ahead if you read this Queensland University of Technology press release. It’s about this parliamentary report which recommended a trial of relaxing helmet laws in certain places.
The new law apparently will cause a disaster.
“Head injuries to rise by up to 60%”
Really? Would head injuries rise 60%?
Does it assume that the only reason anyone wears a helmet is because of a law?
It’s not as if the law proposed forcing people to ride with a naked head. Just that they would have the option.
Is it justifiable to indicate such dramatic ramifications? Is it misleading? I find it hard to believe.
By the way, perhaps due to fear of the falling sky, it’s not on the radar according to the minister’s press release.
