The cry of "why not make pedestrians wear helmets" is MEANT to be ridiculous! The hyperbole is used to display the ridiculousness of the MHLs for cyclists. But of course you completely ignore that.high_tea wrote:Not quite as tiresome as demands to defend things I never said, but still.
So you don't believe Australia should have MHLs? Great! Otherwise stop being evasive.
I'm not so sure about the hyperbole to be honest.
