More victim blaming nonsense from the guy I spoke with last week.
"I have one reason why you should wear a helmet - your family will hate you when you are a vegetable because you did not wear one!"
FFS this guy used to be a personal injury lawyer and spouts shit like this. I dread to think how he has brought up his kids that they would hate him if he had a helmetless crash on his bike. If he had been hit harder by the cyclist when he stepped out into the road last week, would his kids have hated him for not wearing a helmet?
He went on to tell me how he got taken out by a car door a few months ago, and "helmet saved my life". Perhaps he needs to ride outside of the door zone to save his own life.
