When the number of cyclists wearing a helmet approaches 90%, the same as drivers wearing seatbelts then I am sure it will become much less of an issue.

Again, I have to disagree. If everyone wears a helmet, I will be at best marginally safer (i.e. protected from head injury in certain types of collisions). And how will that make it any more convenient for me to have to schlep the thing around or arrive places with a hot head and sweat running into my eyes?

This fixation on helmets just baffles me. It's as if we are worrying about drivers wearing helmets on a road system without lines, turn signals or stop lights.
