Capital Bikeshare has been a success since launching. But one element it's lacking? Helmets.
The public bike rental program known as Capital Bikeshare has, by almost any measure, been a huge success. Ridership is exceeding all expectations and new rental stations are cropping up all over the District and Arlington. But there's one problem no one seems to be discussing: many Bikeshare users ride without helmets. Transportation reporter David Schultz talks with bicyclists and local officials about the situation and whether anything can be done to encourage safer biking.
