VOOR EN TEGEN Verplichte fietshelm voor kinderen?

Kinderen die een fietshelm dragen, hebben na een ongeluk een aanzienlijk kleinere kans op hersenletsel. Toch lopen de meningen uiteen over het verplichten van een fietshelm. Er kunnen namelijk ook nadelen zijn, zoals minder fietsen, risicovoller fietsen en riskanter rijgedrag van automobilisten. In dit artikel pleit een aantal artsen voor verplichting van de fietshelm bij kinderen, en de Fietsersbond tegen verplichting ervan.
