Now the bit that worries me about helmets is they may also allow you to survive injuries you'd rather have killed you outright. That said, I've yet to see anyone personally in this predicament.
Working in A&E I wonder how may people you have seen who have suffered, or died from major brain injuries for motor vehicle accidents?
A colleague of mine regularly visits her mother in a Bristol hospital, where her mother is suffering from a brain related
ailment, which has nothing to do with a motoring incident. My colleague mentioned that she enquired as to what the
other people on her mother's were in for. "Head injuries from motor vehicle accidents" she was told.
Now, no politician or motoring groups are going to advocate for motorists to wear helmets (on the off-chance that they*
may be involved in a serious motoring accident).
