motorists punish helmet-wearing cyclists with close passes ...

Driver driving close to helmet
Wearing a bicycle reiterated a paper published today by British psychologist Dr.
Australian Statistician Dorothy Robinson
They\'re from more than one-
Citing 2007 studies, the study also found
The women\'s head on the bike was provided by the driver with the maximum distance through.
Statisticians at the University of New South Wales in Australia earlier refuted Walker\'s helmet discovery.
So today\'s research by Walker and Robinson is a rebuttal to this rebuttal.
Whether the bicycle helmet is available
Population security interests are a surprising heated debate among academics-there is no definitive scientific basis on this issue. Dr.
Walker\'s 2007 study used a bicycle with a camera and a distance measuring device.
He recorded 2,500 drivers passing his data on a road not far from the University of Bath.
He spends half of his time wearing a bike helmet, not half of his time wearing a bike helmet.
It turns out that when he wears a helmet, the driver tends to be closer to him.
This \"pass of punishment\" can also lead to collisions, collisions, resulting in injury and death, rather than those who are guilty of dangerous takeover.
Walker suggested that drivers think that cyclists wearing helmets are more serious, more experienced and predictable than cyclists without helmets, and that, therefore, drivers are less careful than they are.
The driver may also mistakenly believe that the bike helmet is usually made of an inflated helmet.
Polystyrene-is an armor that protects cyclists from any impact of a motor vehicle.
Bike helmets are not designed for this collision (
They can\'t even protect themselves from concussion. )
Jack Olivier and Scott Walter of the University of New South Wales took Walker\'s original data and rearranged it, claiming in 2013 that \"wearing a bike helmet has nothing to do with close-range motor traffic.
To Forbes.
Walker revealed: \"If someone has written a paper saying that your job is wrong, you can look at it in detail.
Five years later, today\'s newspaper is his response.
He claims that Olivier and Walter can only refute his research by redefining the meaning of the words \"close\" and \"close.
\"By analyzing their data, it is clear that the issues they set themselves are slightly different from my original ones,\" Walker said on the phone . \". “[Their study]
They all insisted on their new definition of \"closing\" and they decided to set it at 1 m.
The randomness of this definition is a key stumbling block in their paper.
To challenge their conclusions, he received Robinson\'s help from the University of New England, Australia.
By using many different transfer distances, not just a single metric of the 2013 study, Walker and Robinson were able to double the discovery of the 2007 paper.
\"It is worth noting that the university research group [
2013 which paper and others wrote it]
RemarkedWalker seems to be very interested in refuting any suggestion that a bike helmet is not a safe panacea . \".
Walker said in the new newspaper that he and his colleagues
The author \"takes a step back from the micro-debate on 1.
5 m to 1 m and start asking bigger questions about what makes the bike safe.
This, he said, \"is not a collision in the first place, but a collision, and tries to reduce the severity of the collision slightly . \".
He added: \"Dorothy did some very interesting research on the mandatory helmet laws in Australia. Her [work]
It is highly recommended that when you look at the \"before\" and \"after\" of the helmet law, you do not see any benefits.
If having people wearing a bike helmet can have a significant impact on population safety, you should see a significant change in the damage rate when the helmet becomes a mandatory product, but her analysis shows that you don\'t see that one.
Instead, he was in favor of dismissal --of-
Risk method: \"In terms of protecting cyclists from the danger of cars, if we focus on [we really go in the wrong direction]cycle]
The helmet, at best, can only do something after the collision.
Walker believes that wearing \"personal protective equipment \"(PPE)
Is the least effective option to deal with potential hazards, and PPE \"will only be used after efforts to eliminate hazards through elimination, substitution, engineering and administrative control fail.
He prefers the Dutch way: separate the driver from the person riding the bike.
Not a helmet. (
In general, Dutch cyclists do not wear helmets when riding bicycles, but there is no prevalence of head injuries in bicycles --Crazy Netherlands)
Other scholars agree.
Writing in 2012, Dr.
Harry Rutter, an epidemiology specializing in sports activities, believes that \"most of the risks of serious injuries while riding a bicycle are not inherent in this activity-drivers impose it on cyclists.
When he rides his bike, walkers often wear helmets.
This is mandatory for a long time.
He recently won the long-distance bike race.
North Cape 4000 is a nonstop 4,300-
The kilometer race from Italy to the top of Norway.
The participant only grabbed the minimum amount of rest, even if no helmet was required, Walker said he would fall off the bike anyway due to lack of sleep. (
\"My helmet is more air powered than my bare head and thus provides a time advantage,\" he noted . \". )
Although Walker occasionally wears a helmet, his 2007 findings still excite him. “Wearing a [cycle]
The helmet may collide [
With motor vehicles]
He wrote at the time: \"It was more likely at first that a conclusion he said was now confirmed.
