As I explained to you recently . . .
Here's something to warm your civil-liberty-loving heart. By
Massachusetts law, Sheldon Brown must do this:
Chapter 85, Section 11D.
Bicycle helmets; display of sign recommending use
Every person engaged in the retail business of selling or
renting bicycles shall display in an area conspicuous to
customers of such business a sign containing the following
statement: "It is highly recommended that a bicycle helmet
be worn while riding a bicycle.".
It doesn't matter whether Sheldon does or doesn't recommend
it--he has to display a conspicuous sign in his bike shop
that "it is highly recommended." (So far, no law tells him
what signs to post on his web site.)
