"If you ditch the need for helmets, more people would start cycling"
I simply don't believe this.
I don't know a single person that doesn't bike because they have to wear a helmet. And I suspect anyone that reports such is just looking for a socially acceptable reason for their lack of exercise.
"You realize that is just a temporary problem"
So we'll just let people get hit by cars until the cars stop being dumb?
Great plan. I've been waiting 100 years for that to happen. Maybe Google will finally solve it.
Believe it. I was just thinking last week that running is really hard on my feet. I run a 5K three days a week. I was considering taking up biking as I figure it's more low impact. Then I thought, crap, but I have to wear a helmet. That was the end of that.
