I was sort of shocked at the debate surrounding helmet usage on bicycles. I use a helmet, I don’t find it to be very onerous. Just the other day, I’m confident there would have been a death outside my workplace were it not for the rider wearing a helmet.
But something else caught my attention over the past few weeks of passable biking weather. The warmer, if rainy, weather has brought out lots of bikes. That’s a good thing. What I did not see amongst the hard core winter commuters was mp3 players and headphones in ears while in motion.
Is this another issue with two sides like the helmet issue? I’m not sure this one does? What about pedestrians using headphones? Runners?
