Cycling hero walks out on Spanish traffic director over compulsory helmets

From the European Cyclists' Federation News dated 30th April 2013:

Pedro Delgado, winner of the 1988 Tour de France and Spanish professional cycling spokesman, suddenly walked out of a recent meeting with the director of the Spanish national traffic authority (DGT), María Seguí, after a heated discussion about government plans to ban cycling without helmets. Pedro Delgado told María Seguí that he was opposed to mandatory helmet legislation because it would discourage people from cycling.

Following the recent proposal to consider making cycling helmets compulsory in Spain there is a petition asking for the dismissal of the Director General of Traffic. Although in Spanish it is quite easy to fill in.
