Bike Helmets – Benefits discussed

BikeHelmetSafety

Bike helmets have been an annoyance to me for some time. They are valuable, I know, they save lives and could save mine. Still I find myself annoyed by carrying it, having it cut down on my range of motion, and looking like garbage. The Atlantic ran an interesting article on if it actually helps. There are other side effects to forcing people to wear helmets, namely few people riding. Also NBER found some statistical backing to the reduction in injuries could be due to few people riding rather than helmet protection. Its a good read.
