Do bicycle helmets make people take unnecessary risks?

This article makes some interesting points, but I’ve yet to meet anyone who thought that wearing a bicycle helmet was going to make them take unnecessary risks. I’ve organized and run a kids bike helmet give-a-way that’s donated 900+ helmets and seen many of those kids realize that wearing a helmet is something they do when they ride a bicycle – none of them have acted like wearing a helmet makes them invincible. Perhaps the author has found a group that thinks less about long term consequences of their actions than kids.
