First you’re told wearing a bike helmet makes you safer. Now we’re hearing that’s not true. So which is it? A new report by the University of Bath says bicycle wearing can increase risk taking and sensation seeking in adults. Because internally I guess we’re all a bunch of children.
The report says humans adapt their risk-taking behavior based on perceptions of safety, meaning they often take more risks when using protective equipment.
You can see the entire report here, although I have to warn you it’s some dense reading.
