Man dies from head injuries in bike crash and fuels helmet debate

“It is known that helmets are of very limited value in the event of a collision with a car… The promotion of helmets implicitly shifts responsibility of care to the cyclist and away from drivers, and away from the provision of safer streets by means of street calming or bicycle facilities.” Why not do both. I personally wear a helmet all the time, but I still want better bike lanes and safer motorists.
