Last week, at the at the BC Injury Prevention Conference 2010, some presenters and attendants put forward interesting questions that manifest inconsistencies in people’s behaviour and perception of risk:
- Why parents have their children wear bicycle helmets, but still refuse to use them?
- Why more than 70% of Canadians think they drive better than others? Does this indicate that education campaigns have failed?1
- Why gang related crime gets more police and media attention than road crashes, when the latter produces way more fatalities than the former?1
