Petition Haydn's Law – All children 16 and under to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle
To pass a law that all children aged 16 and under must wear a cycle helmet when riding a bicycle
The roads are not what they used to be, firstly they are much busier, where there used to be one car per family there are now 2,3 4 or more, many of these cars are 4x4 or SUV. There are many more accidents on the roads causing severe brain injury or even worse. As parents and adults it is our duty to protect our children as much as we possibly can. Research has shown that it is safer for children to wear helmets but they often refuse to wear one. This law would ensure all children would wear a helmet.
