Minutes of March's 'Cycle Safety Summit' with Leith Brown revealed:
a. The minister left half way through the meeting
b. Lothian & Borders Police rep called for a mandatory h****t law to be introduced in Scotland!
"11.3 Alan Duncan informed the meeting that police do pro-active work with regard to cyclists and visibility he called for a national initiative in Scotland for the mandatory wearing of cycle helmets. He said moped drivers must wear helmets and cyclists frequently reach 30mph . Scotland could lead the way and host the debate. Jill Mulholland said that the Road Safety Framework contains a commitment to look at this issue."
