National Radio considers the Australian helmet laws

"The law here is that cyclists must wear helmets, but in Europe it is not mandatory, and yet it's much safer to cycle. Some say helmets make cycling more dangerous and others that they actually cause brain injury and the law should be repealed. The debate makes climate change look like a walk in the park."

On 19th September 2010, Australia's National Radio devoted nearly an hour to examining the country's increasingly controversial bicycle helmet laws. An audio podcast and transcript of the broadcast can be found here.
