Physicians and risk assessment

Kathleen rides a bicycle. Kathleen’s fork failed on braking. Kathleen fell and bumped her head on the road.

Kathleen has a concussion and feels a little dizzy. Kathleen’s doctor says, “Don’t ride your bike! It’s too dangerous!”

The doctor says driving a car, however, is fine and dandy. Which Kathleen calls, the “worst doctor advice ever.”

    Hmm, my own doctor’s advice was to not ride harder than however much pain I could bear.
