Helmetless

The helmetless debate ensues, this time in the NYTimes

Where should we come down on this matter? Here is what I want to know:

(1) Where helmetless behavior reigns strong, what is the average speed of the cyclist?

(2) Where helmetless behavior reigns strong, what is the average speed of the auto?

Nothing ever talks about these matters. I imagine both are substantially slower than in most US settings. Here’s a proposition: bring down the speeds of both and helmetless behavior might not be such a big deal.

One thought on “Helmetless”

  1. Helmets are OK but they mess up your hair. And to me being fashionable is more important than being safe. When I pedal (especially in traffic, which may contain hot women) I like to have my long locks wave in the breeze! Makes the chicks swoon.
