Mirrors More Than Helmets

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 5, 2006

Dear Editor,
    What with all the flap about bicycle helmets? There's not a word about rearview mirrors on the bicycles or helmets ["Postmarks," Sept. 1].
    Most riders have no idea what is behind them. The best thing for bicycle-rider safety would be a requirement that bicycles have rearview mirrors or riders have mirrors on their helmets.
