Half of farmers leave bike helmet behind

Monday, 13 September 2010

Research has found fifty per cent of farmers do not wear helmets when riding the farm motorbike.

The Kondinin Group's latest National Agricultural Survey also found that only one in five farmers always wears a helmet.

Farm safety expert Peter Hickey says farmer's excuses for not wearing a helmet included that they were uncomfortable, restricted hearing and made it hard to direct their dogs

Perhaps the facts that

A: the chance of falling off on the dirt or grass at less than the speed of sound and actually hurting yourself is pretty damn minimal,

B: you dont have to wear one on private property.

C: you dont even have to own one


might point to the fact that they're not all stupid and unduly influenced by idiots that think they need to tell other people what to do. Who needs an excuse?
