It's important understand that helmet wearers run a far higher risk of neck injury than non helmet wearers.

The only near fatal cycling accident I ever had, I was wearing a helmet and my lower body was almost run over by a semi making an illegal right at yonge and queen in Toronto. ( I was saved by 2 pedestrians who pulled me from under the truck before I was squash(ed). I no longer wear a helmet.

The most important thing about the helmet law is that it is not enforced. Which means it will be enforced selectively. Which means it will be like carding a tool for the police, which has nothing to do with safety.
