Contrary to their protestations, what counts is not what helmet believers believe but the actual evidence pertaining to protection & helmets.
Notwithstanding the fact that 'tout le monde' knows the use of helmets automatically encourages increased risk-taking behaviour, helmet believers still cling to the irrational faith that a helmet will protect you 'no matter what'! Now this would be a laughable matter if the consequences were not & had not been so dire.
$$ Why are we so willingly prepared to accept the enslavement of non-freedom brought to us by helmet believers?
$$ Why does the notion of 'zero' evidence in relation to safety not trigger our personal &/or collective alarm bells?
$$ Why am I feeling so gloomy about it all?
