That is one for the site moderator to answer, however in my view it is down to the individual adult to choose to wear a helmet or not. In Australia, where helmets are now compulsory, cycling as an activity dropped 30% when the legislation came in. The UK government takes the view that it would not be beneficial for legislation to be brought in making the wearing of helmets compulsory. Most A&E hospitals are pro helmet wearing because they see the results of not wearing one, but they are only seeing a small proportion of the more serious accidents and in many cases wearing a helmet would not make much difference. Helmets to the EEC standard need only withstand a 12 mph crash anyway.
