Cyclists: turban or helmet


4BC Drive: A turban wearing cyclist is currently facing court for riding his bike without a helmet.

23 year old Sikh, Jasdeep Atwal, has been cycling on Brisbane streets for over a decade but has only recently been singled out by council for riding helmetless, due to his religious beliefs.

Putting religious beliefs aside, should we be allowed (after a certain age) to choose whether we wear a helmet or not?

Founder of Helmet Freedom Dave Kinkead joins Gary Hardgrave to argue why helmets aren't necessarily the answer to road safety.
