Cooks campaign for compulsory helmets for motorcyclists

The 'Cook Islands Helmets Saves Lives' group on Facebook generated about 1000 likes within a couple of days of being created.

One of the groups members, Sue Fletcher-Vea, says the group is upset with the tragedies that have been happening on the roads, especially those involving children.

She says they want to raise awareness and push for change because they don't want to see anymore injuries and deaths.

The group has written a letter to the Minister for Police, Teariki Heather, and other relevant authorities requesting for a meeting to discuss the issue.
