Mandatory Bicycle Helmet Laws


Mandatory Bicycle Helmet LawsMandatory bicycle helmet laws have always generated controversy. On the plus side, helmets do prevent head injuries. However, many bicyclists and their support groups are against all-ages helmet laws because they feel it makes the sport more dangerous and it could decrease ridership as a result because it takes the fun out of bicycling. This applies to adult helmet law requirements.

We believe in helmet laws. We believe that it is good public policy even though it may limit the ease of bicycling because we believe that the values of helmets outweigh the negatives. In the event of a cycling accident, helmets can help to prevent head injuries.

We would like to see a California mandatory all ages helmet law. There are currently other states that have such proposals in front of their state legislatures.

In California, there is no current legislation on the table for an all-ages mandatory helmet law. There have been discussions, but the proposals never came for a legislative vote.

Mandatory bicycle helmet laws Some organizations and experts believe that helmet laws would prevent, to a degree, many people from exercising because it makes exercise a bit more inconvenient. We disagree with that conclusion and believe that the benefits of mandatory helmet protection outweigh the inconvenience of buying and wearing a helmet to protect the cyclist from a serious head injury.

Hidden FDA Database Concealed Reports of Surgical Stapler Malfunctions

A hidden FDA database of medical device failures was shut down in June 2019. The database contains medical device reports submitted to the FDA via its Alternative Summary Reporting Program from 1999 to 2019. Reports which were sent to this database were not, until recently, made public. The Alternative Summary Reporting Program is a non-public database, unlike the FDA’s MAUDE database which publicly logs medical device failures or defects for public review.
