Thank you for answering the "Do helmets save lives?" question correctly. Only by comparing fatalities to the number of riders on the road(or better yet miles ridden) can fatality statistics be compared. Remember, NHTSA screamed how airbags would save thousands of lives. After 5 years of airbags, guess what, they were wrong. Way wrong. So when people scream that helmets save lives, make sure they back it up with facts.
Re: GRRRRR....

A simple hypothetical scenario: You wear a helmet and you walk away. End of issue. As for peer preasure, if you are so weak-willed that you will not wear your helmet because you don't want to be "the one full-face geek on the street" then perhaps you should not be riding in the first place.
