Andrew Neill: Helmets Save Lives


In March 2010, I was hit by a car whilst training for a charity triathlon.

My back was broken in 2 places, amongst many other injuries.

The only part of my body not marked or injured was my head. Purely because I was wearing a helmet.

I wrote a diary of my time in hospital, purely to keep my mind active whilst being immobile. www.bhit.org (a charity that promotes the use of cycle helmets for children).
I wanted to promote the use of wearing a cycle helmet and have donated any proceeds to

My local council (London Borough of Bromley) now use my diary (they bought 500 copies) as part of their road safety education.
