I used to not like helmets much, but I always wore one because I didn't trust some of the other drivers in my immediate vicinity.
One day, while on my bike, I was hit hard by a truck. While I was recuperating from surgery in the hospital, I asked the doctor if he thought the helmet might have saved my life. He said he didn't know, and to just look at my helmet. He said whatever happened to my helmet would have happened to my head if I was not wearing a helmet. He said if it looked like injuries I could live through, then all the helmet would do would be to maybe prevent a concussion or keep somebody from becoming a vegetable.
I looked at my helmet. I kinda think it's the reason I'm still here. I wear a real nice one now.
