Our youngest project in promotion cycling was launched in Enkel sökning Avancerad sökning - Forskningspublikationer Avancerad sökning - Studentuppsatser Statistik. Logistic regression analysis taking into account data from the control towns indicated that the helmet law had a positive effect on children cycling to schools during the first 6 months, and a weak delayed but more long-term positive effect on adult cyclists on cycle paths. Nonetheless, a weak but significant effect on adult bicyclists remained: There are too many bicycle-related head injuries, but the risk of such traumas could be reduced considerably by the use of helmets. Considering children cycling on cycle paths and for recreation in housing areas, there was a tendency towards increased helmet use during the first post-law year, but this was followed by a reduction to a lower level in than in Formally, the law applies to children aged 6—12 yearsalthough the intention is to increase helmet use by all cyclists.
Nevertheless, much has been learned from the initiation and implementation of this local action.
A network of 9 scenic bicycle routes 3' km in total throughout the country was opened in Increased bicycle helmet use in Sweden: There were no positive effects on children in housing areas and on cycle paths.
