The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) is currently conducting a poll on the wearing of cycle helmets (closes 17/04/11).
I will be honest and make clear I wear a helmet most of the time but am absolutely against legislation forcing mandatory helmet use. I suspect most readers will share my sentiments. As the poll is open to anyone I urge you to take a few minutes to complete it.
Lets not go the way of Australia. We are fat enough already (as a nation!).
