The Seattle City Council is developing a bike-sharing program for the city. Under the current plan, around 500 seven-speed bikes and helmets will be available to rent from kiosks in parts of Seattle.
Some bike-sharing advocates say the helmet requirement is a big problem, because nobody who rents a bike will also want to rent a helmet. But it’s illegal to bike in King County without one. Should King County keep the helmet rule? Would you rent a bike and a helmet? Ross Reynolds hears from listeners.
