"Mr Smith, a paramedic, is campaigning for a law to force cyclists to wear helmets. The teenager was not wearing a bike helmet when he collided with a van while cycling to work."
Victim blaming much? all the reporting around it is about how "he didn't want to wear a helmet because it might ruin his hair." What about the van that he collided with, would he have miraculously swerved to avoid a collision if he was wearing a magical helmet?
