Re: “Helmets a Plenty

As a cyclist, cycling advocate, and as someone who has worked for bike shops, provincial, and regional cycling organizations, as well as someone who has sustained minor head injuries, both with and without a helmet, I must admit, that while commuting without a helmet, I can notice a HUGE deal of respect that I get from drivers, compared to the times that I have been wearing a helmet.

When not wearing a helmet, I certainly do feel that I have a better sense of spacial recognition, and am much more concious of my riding. I feel I am much less likely to be an idiot rider, cutting into traffic, running red lights etc.

While wearing a helmet, motorists often become the idiots, as much as myself. Of the 4 times I have been struck by a motorist, in various cities and towns, I have all but once been wearing my skid lid. That one time that I wasen't, I can honestly say it was my own fault.

I truly believe it should be a choice if an ADULT wants to wear his lid or not. All I know is that without mine, I would most likely be dead right now.
