Rethinking Safety


One of the best essays on the matter, written by Marjut Ollitervo, vice chair of the Finnish Cyclists'​ Federation. There is also a video and even a nice poster, but please take your time and read the article first. It's worth it!

Some bits to whet your appetite:
Cycling is a solution to many things: health, pollution, noise, congestion, equality, accessibility and environmental issues. That’s why I want to promote cycling. But there is an issue that keeps coming in the way: Safety.
It seems to be very difficult to talk about safety. People are very emot

It's true, of course, that cyclists have to have a bicycle, and in most cases they also have to have a 1 kg lock to carry on the bike, at least where I live. So the helmet does not look like something extraordinary disruptive.
OTOH, practical evidence shows that the problem is grave. Whenever in a country helmets become mandatory, cycling numbers drop significantly. Which indicates that many cyclists seem not to accept the helmet.
The same is true for cars. Apart from race cars, car drivers or other occupants never wear helmets. But the head injury number are higher for car occupants than for cyclists, at least in Europe. One can assume, that cars would be less attractive, if people would be forced to wear helmets, even if carrying helmets in a car is even less annoying than carrying a helmet with a bike.
To me, it's interesting that head or other injury numbers for cyclists are very low in the Netherlands and Denmark — two countries where helmets are rarely used, esp. in the Netherlands.
Car drivers and passengers don't have to wear helmets. However bikers have to wear helmets: whole-head ones. Again: bikers are at a much higher risk for accidents and injuries. This may explain the lower rate of head injuries (that, and the much lower rate of bikers).

But that helmet indices its own problems (reduces eye-sight, uncomfortable to wear, and such).

It is all pros and cons.
