Think on this, seat belts will stop you going through the window in an accident but might prevent you getting out fast in the event of a fire or going into a flooded river
Would this stop you using them
no, because on balance it is safer to use them than not, but in certain instance they are dangerous. Same applies to a helmet.
Having said that Iím still not sure that a helmet is really necessary on a rib
unless you are racing or going too fast
