Are u kidding? to ride anything without a helmet is totally stupid. I am an inventor and own an Australian company called Voztec Helmets, most head trauma can occur with as little as a 10k per hour impact.
[Editor’s comment: here we see fear mongering motivated by commercial interests]

If u want people to die or end up vegetables then ban helmets. Cannot believe i am hearing this.
[Editor’s comment: did we say we wanted to ban helmets?]

Do you wear a helmet when in a car?

Don’t tell me that seat belts etc prevent head injuries. Far more people are admitted to hospital with head injuries from inside cars than from riding bikes.

Thats why they have air bags and racing car drivers wear them u kidding.
[Editor’s comment: He did tell me after all. Noted that racing car drivers wear helmets, but not everyday drivers. Point made.]

So you don’t wear a helmet in a car?  Then stop telling other people to wear helmets, otherwise you could be considered hypocritical.

BTW, there must be a lot of “totally stupid” people in the world, because most ppl in the world ride bikes without helmets.
