Nanny State Legislation - Helmet Law submission

Have you written to the Senate Committee looking at bicycle helmet laws yet? We have until October 5th to get our submissions in.

Of the 135 submissions to this Inquiry that relate to helmet laws, 124 are opposed to the laws. You can read all the submissions at http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Economics/Personal_choice/Submissions

Predictably but sadly the Australian Medical Association wants to retain the laws and denies that the laws reduce cycling.

If you cycle less because of helmet laws, write to the Senate and tell them the AMA is wrong!

It's easy to make a submission - write it in Word or equivalent, attach your document to an email sent to economics.sen@aph.gov.au and put your name, phone number and postal address in the email (needed so the Senate can verify your details). It can be just one sentence or as long as you like (but we suggest keeping it short).
