UK Member of Parliament and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport Norman Baker, who is responsible for cycling, walking and local transportation planning, has attracted some controversy from car-driving road safety advocates. Baker likes to demonstrate the safety of cycling by riding without a bicycle helmet.
Baker earned fame earlier in his political career by eschewing a government provided car and electing to use a Brompton folding bicycle for trips between his office and the House of Commons.
