  • Bell Helmet has also paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to lobbyists to promote mandatory helmet laws across the US and elsewhere, against the wishes of a majority of cyclists who oppose such laws.
  • Inaccurate claims and fear mongering, clearly visible in this ad, are responsible for the large number of parents who drive their children to and from school even though they might live only a few blocks away.
  • Bell's scare tactic advertising
