    Cool, now make sure it's adjusted well, it should resist being lifted at the front or the rear to expose the front or back of your head.

    If it makes you feel safer to ride with your new helmet, don't.

    Goodie. It's safe for you to run red lights now. Just ask anyone who wears one.

    This. Now that you have a helmet, don't ride any less safe.

    and hope that nobody drives less safe around you because you have a helmet...
