Not wearing a helmet while riding a bike is the same as... Walking around
.....without a helmet.

Because if our abilities to protect our heads during cycling accidents have diminished, this is also true for walking/jogging/running accidents. So this deficiency has to be dealt with in the same way as with cycling. Avoiding distraction is a way of preventing accidents, which is quite different from damage control by means of protective gear or falling techniques in case of an accident.
