Can I play? I had two bad 'uns in the 70s/80s. One of which was a flying-like-superman job as a teenager which left my head untouched, and the other was in my mid 20s, a low speed one (feet stayed strapped in) that knocked me out cold and resulted in lots of blood on the road, and frightened the willies out of my mate, who thought I was dead.Thinking back to the 'gap' thread which has had a lot of nostalgia in it, I fell off a number of times between the ages of 5 and 18, at least one saw me in hospital with a suspected green stick fracture. None of them saw me with head injuries. It turns out the bank of anecdotal 'I fell off and didn't need a helmet to save my life' stories actually do exist, they are just a bit of a while ago.
They do, their heads aren't that shape normally.You endorse the wearing of safety helmets by competitive cyclists. And I think we are being invited to conclude that therefore all cyclists should wear helmets.
Do you endorse the wearing of safety helmets by Formula 1 drivers?
I accidentally saw a picture of him after that accident on some foreign news site. It wasn't his glasses. It looked like he had no nose, it was pressed flat into his face. Clearly he hit the road face on, and his helmet provide no protection whatever.I believe that his glasses were what damaged his face.
