    The title alone is in violation of forums rules concerning hiding swearing.

    Data from the Idaho stop laws indicate that it is safer treating red lights like stop signs (Stopping and then proceeding through the red light when clear).

    So your answer is, it is safer to run red lights with or without a helmet.

    It annoys me that I see so many other cyclists on my urban commute that faithfully wear their helmets and then proceed to ride so dangerously, going through red lights
    and cycling up on the inside of trucks and buses. People seem to equate helmets with personal safety rather than how they ride or whether they have lights at night.
    This alone is helmet thread fodder. Feel free to discuss your views there in the future.
