Not only did mandatory helmet use cause a sharp dip in number of cyclists, but it INCREASED injuries per capita.

Because car drivers were more aggressive?

The same thing has happened at ski areas, with the increased use of helmets.  They believe it is caused by over confidence from wearing a helmet, it makes you more gutsy ;)

Not just more gutsy but you feel like you can go faster.
