Perhaps unlikely, but it happened to me. 22 years ago, I got broadsided in
an office parking lot by someone driving too fast and on the wrong side of
the lane. I landed on my helmet and somersaulted. a witness shrieked in
horror. The helmet had a terrifying gash in it. I was totally fine. Do
what you like, I am required by that to wear a helmet from now on.
That being said, helmets have little to do with what the bicycling community
really needs. Bike lanes, police awareness, etc.
