Wearing a helmet.... leaving it up to the individuals might force the stupid price of helmets down.... Regulating the "safety aspect" of helmets might force out the pathetic crap passed off as safety helmets some which fit badly and protect nothing. It's not clever to ride without a helmet but its cooler.
People have to make their own choice about how safe they are.... Where do you cross the road ?
