"helmet use perpetuates the false idea that cycling itself is inherently dangerous."

I've honestly never understood this idea. We're surrounded by safety equipment all the time; no one thinks driving a car is dangerous just because it's got a seatbelt and an airbag. (in fact, people probably understimate the danger of driving) My apartment has smoke detectors, and there's a fire hose out in the hallway, but I don't live my life in fear of burning to death.

I agree that helmets aren't a universal solution for cyclist safety, but they aren't useless, either, and I've never felt unsafe putting one on.
