I have to wonder if a non mandatory helmet would have saved the cyclist's life.

Obviously posted by a non rider, the answer is sometimes they help, sometimes they cause more harm than good. Mind your own business.

Obviously you make huge ASSumptions about people you don't know. I will continue to post my opinions whether you like it or not. Oh, and by the way, explain your scientific analysis of motorcycle crashes to the family of the guy who died in a helmet protest in Onondaga, NY. He his his brakes, lost control, flipped himself over the handle bars and landed on his head. Oh, the irony!
