Because it's uncomfortable. If it was, I may wear it and not take it off.
Not wishing to join in on the should a helmet be worn or not debate, just commenting on this statement. But have you thought that maybe all helmets are different and that one shape doesn't fit everyone? Even the same make helmets but in different styles will fit differently.
Its a bit like saying that my Selle Italia (or want ever brand) saddle is uncomfortable so I not going to have a saddle at all, I'll stand up all the time.
Not really... the truer comparison is saying that the Selle Italia is uncomfortable, and on those grounds insisting that everyone uses a recumbent
There is no rational comparison for the helmet debate if you are going to exclude the majority of options
If someone does not feel comfortable wearing a helmet then they are making a choice on their own experience......
IT always amuses me when the pro-helmeteers want their choice to be recognised as valid, yet refuse to accept the freedom of others to choose
