Yes, but meic, what if that death was yours?
I've been smashed up and in intensive care through a head injury when I wasn't wearing a helmet - I had a cycling colleague who was unhelmeted and died horribly (but instantly) from a head injury - I have two cycling friends who had helmets destroyed in prangs to the head - one would have died and the other would have been seriously injured.
I hate wearing a helmet, probably for the same reasons that you do also........but I do know why I wear one. Each to their own, it's all a matter of our own choice. I'd never subscribe to compulsory helmet propaganda. However knowing what I know I'd never ridicule them nor argue against wearing one.
