Recently, my kids were delighted to meet Darth Vader in downtown Munich: the German ministry of traffic and infrastructure is urging bicycle riders to wear helmets with a poster featuring a larger-than-life Darth Vader.

The poster’s caption reads as follows:

The saga continues, thanks to the helmet. In every galaxy and on every bike.

In my kids, I have not noticed any increased enthusiasm about donning their helmets, but I sure appreciate an official campaign of a German ministry with geek appeal!
