Read an interesting article in The Telegraph by Boris Johnson regarding the increasing numbers of skiers wearing crash helmets! I didn't ski in Austria last year, we went to Lapland instead but the last time in Austria I did notice that about 35% were wearing crash helmets. This year I was very surprised that it was more like 90% of skiers were wearing the things!! Boris makes an interesting comment asking are these helmet wearing skiers a danger to those of us who don't wear them, he mentioned an accident where a helmet wearer collided with a lady who wasn't wearing one and she was fatally injured. Now I'm all for children and teenagers being safe and I think it's a good thing that it's compulsory in some countries but why on earth are adults joining the growing numbers of helmet wearers? What's wrong with the good old bobble hat!
