Dutch paediatricians reluctant to wear helmets

A survey of paedaitricians in the Netherlands finds that 96% cycle, with 68% riding at least once a week.

When cycling for transportation, 94% never wear a helmet and 2% always do. When cycling for recreation, 70% never wear a helmet and 18% always wear one.

The researchers thought that these tendencies might be why helmet promotion campaigns are little supported by Dutch paediatricians.
