After reading about bad cops and cyclists, it was nice to see this video, but Copenhagnize has debunked it as propaganda from the Danish Road Safety Council, a pro-car lobby.
Being Dutch, I’ve never really understood bicycle helmets. They’re worn only by fanatics in full semi-pro-garb fantasizing about entering the Tour the France. That means less than 1% of cyclists wear helmets.
Which is pragmatic, since most head injuries suffered on a bicycle would only be deterred by having real protection for your jaw, as well—so you’d need to wear a motorcycle helmet for real protection. Oh well.
Periodically, the helmet debate occurs here and I’ll cut it off quick before it goes to far. We wear helmets and think everyone else should, but it’s free choice.
