[QUOTE=rumrunn6;20225762][QUOTE=Hippiebrian;20225468]why does no one recommend helmets for whatever sent the larger portion of patients to the head trauma unit?
I think they mentioned car crashes. ppl aren't going to wear helmets driving to work on 495 I can tell you that
They have a higher incidence than cyclists do, which makes my point. Why is it that cycling is supposedly so dangerous that helmets are warranted but driving is supposedly so safe no helmets are required?

Reality is that neither really are, unless you really believe you are one of the unfortunate few that will suffer from head damage doing either. If you do consider either of them sufficiently dangerous enough, however, I also recommend you pick up a pedestrian helmet, as they are at most risk statistically.
