That statement is total nonsense IMHO. The helmet CAN protect you in a fall. Period. A collision with a car at high speed probably not so much but I'd rather have it on to offer SOME kind of help than none at all. Do you have kids? If so, do you let them ride without a helmet? I sure hope not......
