David Cameron helmet issue puts accident claims in the spotlightRSS Feed
Photographs apparently showing the Conservative Party leader David Cameron riding his bike while not wearing a helmet have moved the subject of accident claims and health and safety into the election spotlight.
Luke Griggs, a spokesperson from brain injury charity Headway, said he was "deeply disappointed" to learn of the incident.
Mr Griggs said that the Tory leader should be proud to wear a helmet, adding: "He should be setting a good example to cyclists, particularly young cyclists, in the UK."
A spokesperson from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents also commented on the issue, pointing out that it is personal choice whether or not to wear the protective headgear.
"Helmets will not stop an accident from happening, but it will hopefully reduce the severity of injuries," she remarked.
In other road safety news, the AA last month released estimates suggesting that insurers fork out around £2.85 million per month for accident claims relating to potholes.
