Brisbane’s cycle hire scheme and bike helmets

Brisbane is about to start a bike hire scheme with some 1500 bikes at locations around the city.  The contentious issue of compulsory helmet use, and whether that will affect the success of the scheme is the subject of an ABC news article that can be found here http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/04/13/2871105.htm?section=business

A brief scan of the comments indicates a large degree of support for compulsory helmet use.
