Democracy? BMA should try it...

The decision of the Board of the Directorate of Professional Activities of the British Medical Association to lobby for cycle helmet compulsion for adults and children is causing a stink in the medical and cycling worlds. The BMA's volte face could make it easier for the UK government to enact compulsion legislation, which would be bonkers when cycling is one of the solutions to slimming the nation. Sign this online petition. It will be handed to the BMA.

We're especially interested in getting doctors to sign.

If the BMA truly wanted to save lives, the docs' org should be clamouring for helmet compulsion for motorists and pedestrians. Has the BMA been nobbled by a single-issue lobby group which has just been officially slapped on the wrist for misrepresenting scientific data from global helmet studies?

Please pass this link on and let's show the BMA they've picked a fight with the wrong people.
