Over 3,000,000 people in UK suffer from Osteoporosis. If you fall off your bike you can fracture your wrist, arm,collar bone, shoulder,pelvis, leg or cranium. And more work for the NHS treating you.
And bikes and scooters are hired out without helmets!
RoSPA doesn’t even know the number of serious injuries. Their latest report states that they rely only on those reported to the police. The actual number may be two or three times more. <Their stats are useless>

If you can find somewhere to charge it, get an electric car as soon as you can and contribute to cleaner air.
