Apples and oranges. More cyclists, driver education,and bicycle lanes will reduce the number of accidents. Wearing a helmet reduces injuries when involved in an accident. Wearing a helmet does not preclude any of the other measures. If mandating wearing a helmet stops someone from riding their bike then they were not serious about riding it in the first place. I heard all these arguments in 1976 when wearing seatbelts was made mandatory. It is pure and utter nonsense.
